More US troops ordered to Liberia
Agence France-Presse


The United States ordered 41 additional troops to Monrovia which has been under attack by rebel forces seeking the ouster of President Charles Taylor.

The Defense Department said the soldiers, belonging to a naval "anti-terrorism security team" based in Rota, Spain, will join US marines currently guarding the US Embassy in Monrovia.

The deployment has been ordered by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld at the request of US Ambassador to Liberia John Blaney, according to the statement.
