Nine Ugandan soldiers serving as peacekeepers in Somalia have been jailed for running a fuel racket.
The African Union (AU) said they had been sentenced to between one year and three years by a Ugandan military court, which sat in Somalia.
The officers, including two majors, were arrested in a sting operation in June.
The AU mission is fighting alongside Somali government forces against al-Shabab Islamist militants.
It was the first time a military court connected to the AU mission (AMISOM) had sat in Somalia since the troops were deployed nine years ago.
Correspondents say it was decided to do so as an attempt to show Somalia’s citizens that the Amisom force was being held to account.
The nine were among 18 soldiers arraigned before the court for selling fuel belonging to Amisom to civilians in the capital, Mogadishu, an Amisom statement said.
