Definition of Algeria in English:
Algeria was colonized by France in the mid 19th century and was for a time closely integrated with metropolitan France. Following civil war in the 1950s, it achieved independence in 1962. A brief period of multiparty democracy was ended by a military takeover in 1992 after the fundamentalist Islamic Salvation Front had won the first round of the national elections. This prompted a low-level civil war until 2000 when the Islamic Salvation Army, the armed segment of the Islamic Salvation Front, was dissolved
