Mogadishu, SOMALIA

Children playing on an abandoned tank. In 1991 President Barre was overthrown by opposing clans, but they failed to agree on a replacement and plunged the country into lawlessness and clan warfare. In December 1992 US Marines landed near Mogadishu ahead of a UN peacekeeping force sent to restore order and safeguard relief supplies. The US forces withdrew in 1993 following the debacle of the infamous Black Hawk Down' battle.
