More U.S. military personnel sent to Iraq
The U.S. military is sending more troops to Iraq for security.
The Pentagon says 200 military personnel will be in the country to secure the U.S. Embassy, its support facilities, and Baghdad International Airport.
This is in addition to the 100 personnel already in the region.
The Pentagon says the president authorized this increase in troops to protect U.S. citizens and property.
Earlier this month, President Obama sent 300 military advisers to Iraq to assist the Iraqi military.
