October 1981, Western Sahara --- A female guerrilla fighter of the Polisario Front paces with her rifle in Western Sahara. Polisario was formed in 1973, as a reaction towards several broken promises on Western Saharan independence from the Spanish colonialist regime. The name "Polisario" is a short form of Frente Popular para la Liberacion de Saguia el Hamra y Rio de Oro (Popular Front for the Liberation of the Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro). Since 1975, Polisario has been stationed in Tindouf, the westernmost town in Algeria. --- Image by © Christine Spengler/Sygma/Corbis
