In 1973 Guinea Bissau claimed their independence. In 1974 the Portuguese leader, Almeida Cabral, was assassinated. Their independence led to a guerilla war. Then a conflict broke out in the 1990s that drew in Guinea, Nigeria, Senegal and France that later sent the president into exile. There was also a military mutiny later in 1998 which started a civil war.
