New Briefs: Election Troops

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) - Australia will boost its contribution to the United Nations

Transitional Authority in Cambodia with an extra 100 troops in time for Cambodia's

elections this month, a defense force spokesman said.

About 500 Australian troops are already serving as U.N. peacekeepers in Cambodia.

Defense force spokesman Brig. Adrian D'Hage said Australia will also deploy six Blackhawk

helicopters to help transport electoral officers and peacekeeping troops during the

election.
