Changes come to Manas

Tuesday - 6/1/2010, 8:04pm EDT

U.S. military tanker aircraft have suspended refueling operations at Manas air base in Kyrgyzstan. A new contract is being renegotiated with interim government in that country. Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said refueling for KC-135 aerial refueling tankers had been shifted to a new refueling location, which was not disclosed for security reasons. Whitman said the move has not disrupted U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, and the movement of troops and supplies through Manas have not be affected.
