CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) - President Bush has approved a small contingent of U.S. troops to coordinate logistical support for West African peacekeeping forces in Liberia.

A senior administration official speaking Tuesday on condition of anonymity said Bush approved the contingent of six-10 U.S. troops Tuesday morning and that they could enter Liberia as early as Wednesday.

The team could grow to as large as 20 in coming days, but should not be seen as a vanguard of a larger force, the official said.

The authorization was made on the recommendation of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld.
