Washington has deployed a handful of military advisors to Somalia. The
advisors are tasked with helping African Union (AU) troops defeat the al-
Shabab militant group.
The deployment of the military advisors marks the first time that US troops
have been officially stationed in Somalia since the botched international
humanitarian intervention in 1993, in which 18 American soldiers and
hundreds of Somalis died in bloody fighting.
