Members of the Japanese Ground Self-Defence Force (GSDF) prepare the arrival of new troops at the compound of the United Nations peacekeeping mission (UNMISS) upon their arrival in Juba, South Sudan, on November 21, 2016. 
A United Nations plane landed in the morning at Juba airport with 60 new Japanese peacekeepers as the first group of the 350-strong unit, which will replace the current Japanese troops at the UN mission in South Sudan. The group, mostly engineers, will construct roads and facilities and are also assigned for the first time under Japans new security law, which enables GSDF troops to use weapons to rescue UN staff under attack.  / AFP / ALBERT GONZALEZ FARRAN        (Photo credit should read ALBERT GONZALEZ FARRAN/AFP/Getty Images)
