Belgian troops arrive to join UN force in southern Lebanon

A military transport plane brought 139 Belgian troops to Beirut Wednesday to work with the

UN force in war-ravaged southern Lebanon.


Belgium hopes to have some 420 troops in Lebanon by Oct. 6 to be part a UN peacekeeping force which is expected to comprise 15,000 troops. They will assist an equal number of Lebanese troops in keeping the peace along the Lebanese side of the border with Israel. (AP)
