U.S. Beefs Up Security at Baghdad Embassy


The United States is beefing up security at its embassy in Baghdad and will evacuate some workers out of the Iraqi capital, the Department said on Sunday.

"Some additional U.S. government security personnel will be added to the staff in Baghdad; other staff will be temporarily relocated – both to our Consulate Generals in Basra and Arbil and to the Iraq Support Unit in Amman," the State Department was quoted by Reuters as having said.
