WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials say additional American troops are being sent to Afghanistan to assist in the evacuation of some personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. State Department spokesman Ned Price said the embassy will remain open but at reduced staffing levels. Another official speaking on condition of anonymity said U.S. troops will help with security and processing of the personnel at the airport in Kabul. The move reflects deteriorating security in Afghanistan as the Taliban mount an offensive that has rapidly conquered key cities in recent days.
