The White House announced on Monday that U.S. President Joseph R. Biden Jr. had ordered a redeployment of troops to Somalia to fight against al-Shabaab because the terrorist group has “increased in strength and poses a heightened threat.”
The announcement of troops redeployment came on the same day Somalia’s former leader Hassan Sheikh Mohamud was sworn into office. Mohamud was elected president on Sunday after receiving 214 votes from legislators in a poll that was open only to parliamentarians.
