Djibouti (/dʒɪˈbuːti/ji-BOO-tee; Arabic:جيبوتيJībūtī, French:Djibouti, Somali:Jabuuti, Afar:Gabuuti), officially the Republic of Djibouti, is a country located in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Eritrea in the north, Ethiopia in the west and south, and Somaliland in the southeast. The remainder of the border is formed by the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden at the east. Djibouti occupies a total area of just 23,200km2 (8,958sqmi).
Home to around 620,000 inhabitants, the city contains over 70% of the nation's population. The settlement was founded in 1888 by the French, on land leased from the ruling Somali and Afar Sultans. During the ensuing period, it served as the capital of French Somaliland and its successor the French Territory of the Afars and Issas.
Known as the Pearl of the Gulf of Tadjoura due to its location, Djibouti city is strategically positioned near the world's busiest shipping lanes and acts as a refueling and transshipment center. The Port of Djibouti is the principal maritime port for imports to and exports from neighboring Ethiopia. Additionally, the city hosts a number of foreign embassies, and is the headquarters of many international organizations, non-profit organizations and companies. Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport is the main domestic airport, connecting the capital to various major global destinations.
Afework “Affe" Bereket, a 53-year-old dual citizen of Ethiopia and Sweden, helped facilitate the payment of around $2.1 million in bribes to officials in Djibouti’s executive branch and its state-owned telecom company to win a contract valued at about €20.3 million ($24 million), according to a grand jury indictment unsealed Wednesday.
