  • Pentagon may cut commando forces in Africa

Pentagon is likely reduce the number of special operations commandos deployed in Africa.

The United States military experts have mixed reactions to the planned reduction.

The New York Times first reported the plan this past week.

It said the number of commandos in Africa could decrease from about 1,200 to 700 over the next three years.

The proposal follows a Department of Defense investigation of an incident involving four U.S. Green Berets.

The four were attacked and killed while they were on duty in Niger last October.
