1979: Idi Amin is deposed as president of Uganda as rebels and exiles backed by Tanzanian forces seize control of the country's capital of Kampala. Amin, who originally seized power in a January 1971 military coup, fled to exile first in Libya and then Saudi Arabia, where he lived until his death on Aug. 16, 2003.
