Other information:

Oujda ( ooj-DAH, also US: oozh-DAH; Berber languages: ⵡⴻⵊⴸⴰ, romanized: Wejda; Arabic: وجدة‎, romanized: Wajda) is a major Moroccan city in its northeast near the border with Algeria. Wejda is the capital city of the Oriental region of northeastern Morocco and has a population of about 500,000 people. It is located about 15 kilometres (9 miles) west of the Moroccan-Algerian border and about 55 km (34 miles) south of the Mediterranean Sea coast. == History == There is some evidence of a settlement during the Roman occupation, which seems to have been under the control of Berbers rather than Romans.The city was founded in 994 by Ziri ibn Atiyya, Berber chief of the Zenata Maghrawa tribe. Ziri was, with his tribe, authorised to occupy the region of Fas, but feeling insecure in that region and that town, and wishing to be nearer to the central Maghrib homeland of his tribe, he moved to Wajda, installed there a garrison and his possessions, appointing one of his relatives as governor.
