#AceWorldNews – AFGHANISTAN (Baghdad) – July 01 – President Barack Obama has deployed 200 more troops to Baghdad to protect the US embassy as Iraq’s parliament was set to convene Tuesday to seek a solution to the country’s sectarian crisis (AFP)
“In light of the security situation in Baghdad, I have ordered up to approximately 200 additional US Armed Forces personnel to Iraq to reinforce security at the US Embassy, its support facilities, and the Baghdad International Airport,” Obama said in a letter to Congress released Monday.
“This force is deploying for the purpose of protecting US citizens and property, if necessary, and is equipped for combat. “The latest deployment which the Pentagon said had arrived in Iraq on Sunday brings the number of US troops and embassy security forces to 800, following the sudden advance of the Sunni militants that has left nearly 2,000 people dead this month.(DAWN)
