President elect Hassan Sheikh Mohamud meets with U.S Ambassador to Somalia Larry André

The president-elect Hassan Sheikh Mohamud held a meeting with the Ambassador of the United States to Somalia Larry André . The Ambassador congratulated Mohamud for his historic victory on Sunday's competitive Presidential election at Afisyoni tent in the capital Mogadishu. This is even as President Biden authorized the redeployment of several hundred US troops into the Horn of Africa country to combat against Al-Shabaab insurgency. Biden signed an order to deploy U.S. troops to Somalia amid heightened concerns about Al-Shabab, Al-Qaeda's East Africa branch. Al-Shabaab is seeking to overthrow the internationally recognised Federal government of Somalia. The group still controls large swathes of land in Southern and Central Somalia despite being driven out of the capital in 2011. Mohamud now takes over a country that is riddled with terrorism and drought which has claimed lives of both human and animals and displaced others from their homes.
