Slovakia opens roads, railways to US military

In a move that analysts saw as proof that war in Iraq was near, the Slovak cabinet yesterday voted in favour of allowing the US to use the country's roads and railway connections for military-transportation purposes.

Two Christian Democrats, Interior Minister Vladimír Palko, and Education Minister Martin Fronc were the only cabinet members to vote against the US request.
