Somalia __ "Somalia's joy at attaining independence in 1960 was short lived, for just nine years later a military coup installed Mohammed Siad Barre as president. Barre's presidential policy included jailing, torturing and summarily executing anyone who didn't like his radical socialist ideas. Armed resistance movements, already battle hardened by the Ogaden War with Ethiopia, sprouted up over the countryside, and for several decades there were pitched battles between various clans and the military. The conflict built to a crescendo in July 1989, in the city of Mogadishu, when Barre's death squads slaughtered 450 Muslims demonstrating against the arrest of their leaders. Barre's days were now numbered, and he was harried into the mountains of southern Somalia in 1991." History, culture, statistics and more. - From Lonely Planet -
