Czechs and Slovaks prepare for war

Czech and Slovak soldiers in Kuwait have strengthened their defences after the US ambassador in Kuwait and intelligence services warned that Iraq could make a pre-emptive strike.

The commander-in-chief of the joint Czecho-Slovak Unit, General Dušan Lupuljev, said: "I think that this threat has to be taken very seriously."

The soldiers have begun turning their base into a fortress, setting up firing positions and sandbag barriers. Guards are patrolling the area and the roof of the compound.
