This is what happens when no one responsible makes it to the AfD on time. And sometimes when they do, except at least we have the original text. Deleted for having the wrong title. That should have been a Talk page issue or at most an RFC. So now, there is no such thing as Somalian mass killings, because they were not genocide. Below is some placeholder text from some free wiki somewhere, and a bunch of links to better
Siad Barre, a long time Somalian leader, was forced to leave his position in the year 1991. That was the main reason, which led to the beginning of Somalia genocide. The party people of Siad Barre took some steps out of anger that resulted into mass killing of the supporters of the opposition party. As a reaction to this activity, the other groups and the common mass revolted and thus the riot turned into, the genocide in Somalia. This had resulted in temporary deterioration in the political and social conditions of the country for some time.
The mass killing or genocide increased in such manner that the government finally had to transfer majority the people of the country to a safe place. In the whole history of Somalia, this type of crisis had never taken place. The formation of the states and cities that made the Somalia an integrated country was ruined like anything. It was a total destruction from the point-of-view of the political structure of the country.
The Somalia genocide also affected the other countries of Africa. The government and the NGO's tried a lot in order to bring the situation under control. The current situation of Somalia is comparatively better.
