WASHINGTON (AP) -- The State Department is reinforcing security at the U.S. Embassy in Iraq's capital and moving some personnel out of town.
The announcement comes as Baghdad is threatened by the advance of an al-Qaida-inspired insurgency.
State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki (SAH'-kee) said in a statement that much of the embassy staff will stay in place. But others are being temporarily moved to more stable places in Iraq and to Jordan. She did not say the number of people affected.
The embassy has about 5,000 personnel.
