Pentagon deploys 3,000 U.S. troops to Afghanistan


The Pentagon is sending three thousand U-S troops back into Afghanistan to help with security.

Defense Department spokesman John Kirby says the deployment is not a long-term change in military plans for Afghanistan.

He says three-thousand fresh troops are being rushed in to help with a partial evacuation of the U-S Embassy in Kabul.

The move comes just weeks before the U-S military is scheduled to complete its withdrawal from Afghanistan and with the Taliban taking over much of the country.
