U.S. official says troop withdrawal from Syria continues

A U.S. official says America is continuing to withdraw troops from Syria.


The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, says a couple hundred have left. They are largely consolidated in one location in the west and a few locations in the east.


About 1,000 U.S. forces were previously deployed in parts of northeast Syria alongside Kurdish-led forces, but President Donald Trump abruptly announced he would withdraw them, opening the way for Turkey's military offensive into the area.
