The US is sending another 4,000 sailors and marines to Haiti for the earthquake relief effort, diverting them from deployments in the Gulf and Africa.

The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit and USS Nassau Amphibious Ready Group would “significantly” increase the ability to quickly provide aid, the navy said.

The move will increase the number of US troops involved to about 16,000.
