U-S troops have arrived in Ghana, to help protect Americans caught up in fighting in neighboring Ivory Coast. In all, four U-S military planes are expected to land in Ghana.
The United States says it's sending about 200 soldiers to aid the Americans, including 100 schoolchildren, who are pinned down by Ivory Coast's military uprising. The children are in Ivory Coast's second-largest city, which is in rebel hands. But government troops are moving in to retake Bouake (BWAH'-kay).
