    About 150 Marines were dispatched to the Horn of Africa from Spain on Monday to be positioned to provide security or evacuate Americans from violence-racked South Sudan, the U.S. military said. "It's a precautionary movement," said Benjamin Benson, a spokesman for U.S. The move follows an incident Saturday in which three aircraft were hit by ground fire as they attempted to rescue Americans.
