Washington: The United States has deployed a handful of military advisers to Somalia in recent months to help bolster the African Union force there, officials said Friday.

"The US has established a military coordination cell in Somalia to provide planning and advisory support to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and Somali security forces to increase their capabilities and promote peace and security throughout Somalia and the region," US Africa Command spokesman Colonel Tom Davis said in a statement.
