US DISPATCHES MORE TROOPS TO NORTHERN IRAQ

0

BAGHDAD: The Pentagon has dispatched an additional 130 US military personnel to northern Iraq to “develop additional humanitarian assistance options,” the Obama administration announced late on Tuesday, in an indication that the current effort to drop fresh water and meals-ready-to-eat to the refugees, who at one time were thought to number 40,000, might soon grow larger. It came as Great Britain announced it had sent aircraft, including Chinook helicopters, to the area and was engaged in “urgent planning” with the United States “to get those trapped on the mountainside to safety.”
