US withdraws last troops from Somalia

The US has completely withdrawn its troops from Somalia, US Africa Command (AFRICOM) announced yesterday.

"The repositioning of the troops was completed ahead of the deadline in a presidential directive last December ordering the troop removal by mid-January," AFRICOM Spokesperson Christopher Karns told Russia Today (RT), noting that there was still a "very limited" US presence in Somalia.

He pointed out that his country would continue to engage with Somali forces and maintain pressure against Al-Shabaab militant group.

"Our focus very much remains fixed and focused on Al-Shabaab," Karns asserted, adding that it would "not be wise for them to test us."
