Germany will send troops to an EU training mission in Mogadishu, Reuters reported. The move comes less than a year after security concerns led Berlin to abandon a similar training operation, when it relocated from Uganda to the Somali capital.

The decision to pull out had been taken by the previous government, a foreign office spokesman said on Monday, adding that the situation in Somalia had since improved.

The new German government, which took office last December, has promised a more robust foreign and security policy.
