3,000 more

South Korea is sending 3,000 more troops to Iraq:

The South Korean government is considering limiting the size of its additional troop dispatch to Iraq to 3,000, a presidential spokesman said Thursday.

South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun instructed ministers to send no more than 3,000 troops to the Middle East country during a meeting of security-related cabinet ministers Tuesday, chief presidential spokesman Yoon Tai-young said on Thursday.

South Korea decided last month to send a second batch of troops to Iraq at the request of Washington, but has yet not decided the nature, deployment location and number of the troops.
