Roughly 200 US Marines stationed on the southern Japanese island of Okinawa have deployed to Pakistan to help with that country's recovery following the devastating earthquake that struck there a month ago, killing some 87,000, a spokesman said Friday. The Marines flew out of Kadena Air Base on Okinawa aboard a commercial airliner late Thursday, said 2nd-Lt. Clinton Gebke, a spokesman for the 3rd Marines Expeditionary Unit. The length of their humanitarian mission had not yet been determined, though it was expected to continue until the Pakistani government could handle the efforts alone.
