Urubatt Set to Pullout

As UNTAC operations in Rattanakiri province draw to a close, there were friendly

goodbyes as the men of the Uruguyan battalian packed up to go home after more than

a year in the remote province. "We had a really good team here," said provinical

director George Kabore, who came up to the airfield to see the battalion off.

The Urubatt, which numbered more than 1,000 men during the peak of the UN operation,

is on its way home in early August. Soldiers from the Indian battalian have been

brought in to take over for Urubatt for the remaining weeks until August 15, when

both civil and military components of UNTAC will withdraw completely from Rattanakiri.
