Obama: Troops aiding African diplomat evacuation

President Barack Obama says 50 US troops have deployed to the African country of Chad to help evacuate US citizens and embassy personnel from the neighboring Central African Republic's capital of Bangui in the face of rebel advances toward the city.


Obama informed congressional leaders of Thursday's deployment in a letter Saturday citing a "deteriorating security situation" in the Central African Republic. (AP)
