Koeans in Somalia

MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) - The first main contingent of South Korean soldiers arrived

July 31 to join the 27-nation U.N. peacekeeping coalition here.

About 190 army engineers sang patriotic songs at a brief arrival ceremony at a military

airfield in south Mogadishu that has been the target of several recent mortar and

small arms attacks.

Their arrival aboard a civilian jet brought the total U.N. troops strength in Somalia

to 21,690, official said.
