DUBAI (AP)–U.S. warplanes from the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower have already flown intelligence-gathering missions over Somalia while their aircraft carrier deploys off the African nation’s coast, the U.S. military said Tuesday.

The U.S. military has sent the USS Eisenhower to join three other U.S. warships conducting security operations off the coast of Somalia, and aircraft have begun flying over the country, said U.S. Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Charlie Brown in Bahrain, where the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet is based.

Brown said he did not know how long the redeployment would last. “We’ll be there as long as required,” he said.
