    Western Sahara Introduction - 2006
    https://theodora.com/wfbcurrent/western_sahara/western_sahara_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2006 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      Morocco virtually annexed the northern two-thirds of Western Sahara (formerly Spanish Sahara) in 1976, and the rest of the territory in 1979, following Mauritania's withdrawal. A guerrilla war with the Polisario Front contesting Rabat's sovereignty ended in a 1991 UN-brokered cease-fire; a UN-organized referendum on final status has been repeatedly postponed.
