On December 3

On this day in ...
... 1992 (20 years ago today), U.N. Security Council Resolution 794 was adopted. In it, the Council's 15 members unanimously agreed to set up a United Task Force charged with establishing a "secure environment" in Somalia so that humanitarian assistance might be provided to the civilian population. Troops arrived in Mogadishu, as part of UNITAF, within days after the passage of the resolution. (image credit)
