Poland to move troops into one base in Iraq

Poland will transfer about 200 of its troops from a base in central Iraq to a larger base it maintains in the country starting in July, the military said Friday. The Polish troops stationed in Kut in central Iraq will move to the larger base in Diwaniyah, about 130 kilometers south of Baghdad. The base is currently home to some 700 Polish soldiers, said Col. Wojciech Ozga, a spokesman for the military staff. The base in Kut will remain staffed by troops from other countries.
