Panetta: 12 more US troops sent to Libya
Pentagon: Another dozen US troops are in Tripoli to help State Department reopen embassy
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says the Pentagon has sent another dozen troops to Tripoli to help the State Department lay plans for reopening the U.S. Embassy.

Panetta told a news conference that it remains U.S. policy not to send combat troops to Libya. But he disclosed that after having sent four military personnel recently to assist the State Department in Tripoli, another 12 were deployed for the same purpose. He said no others would be sent.

The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli was heavily vandalized during the fighting between rebels and pro-government forces.
