Twenty years on, Malaysian sacrifices in Somalia still remembered


PETALING JAYA: It has been twenty years, and the United States still remembers the Malaysian Armed Forces' role in helping the US Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment, 10th Mountain Regiment and 160th Special Operations Air Regiment escape from the First Battle of Mogadishu.

In a statement issued after visiting the Malaysian Peacekeeping Centre at Telok Kemang near Port Dickson to mark its successful achievement of full training capability, Tom Kelly, the acting assistant secretary of state for political-military affairs, said the United States owed a debt of honour to the Malaysian Armed Forces for putting their lives on the line to rescue their soldiers.
