Somalia is located in the Horn of Africa (East Africa). It borders Ethiopia, Kenya, Djibouti, and the Indian Ocean. The land is mainly open savanna with areas of forest. Most of the warfare took place in Puntland, a self-governed state in the northeastern region of Somalia.
In 1991, the government of Somalia was overthrown by other groups that disagreed with decisions made. As time passed, the Groups were not able to find a new leader. Eventually, lawless Somalia broke out into long lasting warfare, and affected many Innocent civilians. When the agreement was made to elect Abdulkassim Salat Hassan as president, the final conflict was to end the clash between Somalian groups. In 2007 a US airstrike, defended by President Yusuf, hit Southern Somalia, and killed many innocent people but still did not have much effect the constant warfare. The civil war, as some call it, is still in action to this day as they struggle to find a solution.
