Pentagon evacuates diplomats, allies from Sudan

Published: 12.18.13, 19:54 / Israel News

The Pentagon said it flew 120 US diplomats and others out of South Sudan Wednesday because of continuing violence in the African nation.


A Defense Department spokesman, Army Col. Steven Warren, said two C-130 aircraft picked up employees from the US Embassy in the capital of Juba, along with foreign diplomats and some US citizens, and flew them to neighboring Kenya Wednesday. He said a small US military force remained on the ground in Juba to augment embassy security. (AP)
