Biden approves plan to redeploy U.S. troops to Somalia Updated: 2022-05-17 13:18:10 KST

U.S. President Joe Biden has approved a Pentagon request to re-deploy several hundred American troops to Somalia in an effort to counter the terrorist group al-Shabaab.
This reverses a decision by President Trump to withdraw all U.S. troops from the country in 2020.
Quoting a senior U.S. government official, CNN reports that the Somalia deployment will involve fewer than 5-hundred troops already stationed overseas.
The official said that since Trump's decision, which he described as (quote) "abrupt and sudden," al-Shabaab has grown stronger.
