The Ethiopian civil war, between the Ethiopian government and nationalists from Eritrea (an Ethiopian area along the Red Sea), has raged off and on and has been tightly interconnected with Ethiopia’s internal political problems and conflict with neighboring Somalia. In the 1880s Italy captured Eritrea. By 1952 Ethiopia regained control, but eight years later, in 1961, Eritrean nationalists demanded independence from Ethiopia. When the Ethiopian government rejected this demand, civil war erupted. Eritrean rebels again stepped up their separatist efforts after the 1974 revolution. Mengistu’s regime invaded rebel-held Eritrea several times, but failed to regain control.
Fighting between Eritrea and Ethiopia erupted again in May 1998. In June 2000, the two sides signed a cessation of hostilities agreement, and a United Nations peacekeeping force of 4,300 military personnel was dispatched later that year.
