Troops begin to draw down from Trump border assignment

Tuesday 20:02 GMT

The U.S. this week will begin withdrawing many of the active duty troops sent to the border with Mexico by President Trump just before the midterm election in response to a caravan of Central American migrants, U.S. officials said Monday.

That will leave about 3,000 active duty troops in Texas, Arizona and California, mainly comprised of military police and helicopter transport crews who are assisting border patrol agents.

Troops cross North-South Korea Demilitarized Zone in peace for 1st time ever

Wednesday 21:51 GMT

Dozens of North and South Korean soldiers crossed over the world's most heavily armed border Wednesday as they inspected the sites of their rival's front-line guard posts to verify they'd been removed, part of inter-Korean engagement efforts that come amid stalled U.S.-North Korea nuclear disarmament talks.

The removals will leave South Korea with about 50 other DMZ posts and North Korea with 150, according to defense experts in South Korea, but they mark an extraordinary change in ties from last year, when North Korea tested a series of increasingly powerful weapons and threatened Seoul and Washington with war.

Thousands of troops to remain on US-Mexico border as original deployment ends

Sunday 12:39 GMT

On Saturday, that original border mission comes to a close, but thousands of U.S. troops will remain for an extended and reduced mission in support of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) slated to last through January 31.

Days before the midterm elections, President Donald Trump announced the deployment of active duty troops to the southern border to stop caravans of migrants making their way through Mexico.
