WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon says the top two officials at its Defense Intelligence Agency are retiring.

The departure of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as director of the DIA and David Shedd as his deputy was announced Wednesday by the Pentagon press secretary, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby. Kirby said the two are retiring this year, but he was not more specific about the timing and offered no reason for their decisions to leave.

Kirby said the Flynn and Shedd retirements have been planned for "some time." He said replacements would be announced later.
