Following the War of Independence against French colonialism in the 1950's Algeria had a period of relative tranquility until the democratic elections of 1991 when the Islamic Salvation Front (FIS) won the first round of parliamentary balloting and there was a fear that an islamic state was going to be established so the government intervened and since then well over 40,000 people have died due to civil unrest and assassinations.
 
Michael von Graffenried a Swiss photographer, used a hidden panorama camera to covertly photograph in Algeria from the early 1990s through 1998.[1]
 
During the Civil War of the 1990's newspaper offices, photographers and reporters, Algerian and foreign, were regularly murdered by extremists. On 12 March 1996, one of Algeria's greatest photojournalists Djilali Arabdiou who worked for the government weekly Algerie Actualite was assassinated at his house in Ain Naadja a suburb of Algiers.[2] Arabdiou began his career in the 1960's with the daily newspaper Al-Mujahhid
