General Stripped of Command over Sex Claims

A US army general responsible for operations in east Africa has been stripped of his command amid reports of sexual misconduct, a Pentagon official confirmed on Friday.

Major General Ralph Baker, the commander of the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa, was relieved of his duties by the outgoing head of US Africa Command (AFRICOM) General Carter F. Ham, on March 28.

Baker was replaced due to "misconduct that caused a loss of confidence in his ability to command," Pentagon spokesman Major Rob Firman said.
