Djibouti, the former French Somaliland, is a small country sandwiched between Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia, with a port at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. Its importance increased during both the Gulf War and the U.N. intervention in Somalia when it served as a base for Allied troops. The area known as Djibouti was sparsely populated by nomadic people until the French realized its strategic value in 1859. View more
