Biden signs order to resend troops to Somalia

United States President Joe Biden signed an executive order which allowed the American military to redeploy hundreds of troops inside Somalia, according to a report published by the New York Times on Monday.

The paper cited officials familiar with the plans, saying Biden reversed the decision previous President Donald Trump took in his last days at the White House. The number of troops the US plans to send to Somalia could reach 450, the officials added.

The US military intends to increase efforts in fighting Al Qaeda's affiliate terrorist group in Somalia, Al Shabab, in its latest bid, contrasting the Biden administration's decision to completely withdraw from Afghanistan last year and "end the forever war."
