(AURN/AP) - The Pentagon says Marines used a KC-130 cargo plane to evacuate about 20 Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Juba, South Sudan, in a move prompted by what the State Department calls a deteriorating security situation.
Pentagon spokesman Army Col. Steve Warren says the KC-130 flew from Entebbe, Uganda, on Friday, picked up the Americans and returned to Entebbe. He said that Two KC-130s made the trip but only one landed.Marines and sailors with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response help U.S. citizens into a Marine Corps KC-130J Hercules airplane in Juba, South Sudan, during an evacuation of personnel from the U.S. Embassy. — Staff Sgt.

Warren also said the Pentagon believes it has sufficient personnel and assets in the region to respond to any further State Department requests for assistance in Juba.
