Many ancient civilisations inhabited the area of present-day Eritrea. In the 16th century parts of the country came under Ottoman governance, including the coastal zone until the period of Italian colonisation in the late 19th century. During Italian occupation, the country saw major development of the industrial, agricultural and public service sectors. In the 1930s Italian Eritrea was merged with Italian Somaliland and Ethiopia as Italian East Africa. In 1941 Britain took over administration of Eritrea, and in 1950 the country was federated to Ethiopia. Ethiopia entirely annexed Eritrea in 1962, which was followed by 30 years of the Eritrean War for Independence, finally ending in 1991 when Ethiopian forces were defeated. The winning Eritrean People's Liberation Front has held power ever since in a one-party state. No national elections have been held in Eritrea since independence. Another border war with Ethiopia happened between 1998 and 2000, since when there has been periodic further unrest. International observers cite Eritrea as having one of the worst human rights records globally.
