Back to Africa

Comoros, a volcanic archipelago located in the Mozambique Channel of the Indian Ocean, came under French protection in 1886. It became a semi-autonomous French oversea territory in 1946 and complete autonomy in 1961. Became an independent republic in 1975. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Comoros.
