A German military delegation arrived in Djibouti on Sunday for talks with top Djibouti officials, a senior government official told IRIN on Tuesday. He said the 17 member military delegation was in the country to "set up a base camp for German naval forces participating in the fight against global terrorism". The Germans are part of a group of nine nations patrolling the Indian Ocean from Oman to Somalia, looking for suspected terrorists.
