Aug. 12 (Bloomberg) -- The Obama administration has decided to send more than 100 additional military advisers to Iraq to assess Iraqi forces and the challenges they face from Sunni militants, according to a U.S. defense official.

The troops are in addition to about 705 U.S. personnel already in Iraq, including 90 advisers to Iraqi forces, 160 working at two joint-operations centers and 455 security personnel guarding the U.S. Embassy and compound, according to the official, who asked not to be identified in advance of an announcement.
