    The military-backed government scrapped legislative elections in 1992 as the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS), an Islamist party, was on its way to a comprehensive win.

     

    An estimated 200,000 people have killed in fighting since then.

       

    The violence had subsided, but in the past 12 months has regained some of its former intensity.
