Obama deploys small military group to South Sudan

Published: 12.20.13, 07:27 / Israel News

President Barack Obama has deployed a small military contingent to South Sudan to help bolster security at the US Embassy amid escalating violence in the fledgling African nation.


In a letter to Congress, Obama said the 45 military personnel were sent to South Sudan on Wednesday. While they were equipped for combat, Obama said their purpose was to protect US citizens and property and that they would remain in South Sudan until the security situation there improved. (AP)
