STUTTGART, Germany — A U.S. aircraft carrier group and a Marine expeditionary unit have joined a naval seabase off the coast of Somalia in a display of force as the military moves forward with efforts to remove 700 troops from the country.

The Makin Island Amphibious Ready Group and thousands of embarked Marines and sailors from the 15th Marine Expeditionary Group add “significant combat capability” to help protect U.S. forces as they transit in the region, Air Force Maj. Gen. Dagvin Anderson said in a statement Tuesday.
