From 1969 to 1990, president and military dictator Siad Barre oversaw a campaign of atrocities to quash separatist movements in the 1980s. The Somali Armed Forces targeted civilians in the northwest, culminating in the bloody 1988 siege of the regional capital Hargeisa and surrounding nomadic communities, which claimed an estimated 50,000 civilian lives.
