German soldiers of the navy patrol ships "Gephard" and "Hyaene" stand
together during a morning roll call at the naval port of Wilhelmshaven
Januar 4, 2002. The patrol ships, loaded aboard a large transport
vessel will leave Wilhelmshaven to join six other vessels, including
two freighters, which set sail on Wednesday for the Horn of Africa to
protect shipping routes and prevent al-Qaeda fighters travelling to
Africa to seek sanctuary and set up bases. REUTERS/Christian Charisius
