South Korea to Deploy Larger Iraq Force

South Korea has committed another 3600 troops to arrive in Iraq in July and August.

Korea already has 500 medical and support soldiers in the Nasariya area. These soldiers and the new contingent will be deployed to Irbil, in the North.

Along with Force Protection, the Korean troops will be engaged in operations to build highways, clear mines, and provide DNA-testing equipment to assist in the identification of remains of those who died during the regime of Saddam Hussein.
