The United States is once again sending special forces to Somalia in East Africa to fight Islamist terror. It is a policy reversal.
Former President Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of the US military.
President Joe Biden ordered the deployment of several hundred troops, government officials report.
Before Trump’s decision, the US had about 700 men in Somalia to help authorities fight radical Muslims from the al-Shabaab terror group, which has ties to al-Qaeda.
The new American troops should mainly take out the leaders, American media report.
