Washington: The United States is to extend 5,500 more troops in Afghanistan beyond 2016 and President Barack Obama will outline the plans later, administration officials said on Thursday.
Originally all but a small embassy-based force were due to leave by the end of next year. But the US military said that more troops would be needed to help Afghan forces counter a growing Taliban threat.
There are currently 9,800 US troops stationed in Afghanistan. Last week, the top US military commander in Afghanistan, Gen John Campbell, said the
US must consider boosting its military presence there beyond 2016.
The US forces will be stationed in four locations - in Kabul, Bagram, Jalalabad and Kandahar.
