Children playing on an abandoned tank in Mogadishu, Somalia, in 1992. 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.
