NATO deploys troops to Turkey-Syria border

Soldiers to manage Patriot missile system protecting southern Turkey from possible Syrian attacks.

    The Netherlands and Germany are deploying troops to Turkey, where they will be in charge of a Patriot missile system that Ankara requested to help secure the country's borders from a spillover of the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

    The first of about 400 German and 300 Dutch troops have already left for Turkey. US soldiers will also be involved.
