    A Dutch soldier stands guard as a U.S. Marine Corps riot-control squad moves into position behind him May 20 in the Tifnit, Morocco training area. Crowd control was one of several demonstrations as general officers from participating countries observed what had been accomplished during the week-long training at the camp as a part of Exercise African Lion 2015. Exercise African Lion 15 is an annually-scheduled, combined U.S.–Moroccan exercise designed to improve mutual understanding of each nation’s tactics, techniques and procedures while demonstrating the strong bond between the two nation’s militaries. The one-wee exercise includes various types of military training, including a command post exercise; stability operations, such as nonlethal weapons training and crisis/disaster response training. Additionally, in February an intelligence capacity building seminar was conducted.
