US Marine with Somali Child


December 20, 1992. Mogadishu, Somalia. US Marines delivering food aid to the famine stricken country of Somalia patrol a section of the capital Mogadishu. Late in 1992, troops from the United States and other nations attempted to restore political stability and establish free and open food-aid routes by protecting ports, airports, and roads. However, there was widespread looting of food-distribution sites and hostility toward the relief effort by heavily armed militant factions.
