UNITED KINGDOM: Troops Sent to South Sudan

On 28 September, Prime Minister David Cameron announced the deployment of 300 additional troops to South Sudan and 70 additional troops to Somalia in support of the two UN missions. British troops will be engaging in combat training and logistical support. The British troops are likely to have a negligible impact on both conflicts, but the efforts may indicate that more aid to both nations will be forthcoming.
