First Slovak troops return home

The first members of the Slovak anti-chemical unit, part of a joint operation with their Czech equivalents stationed in Kuwait during the Iraqi crisis, have returned to Slovakia.

"Our battalion achieved remarkably good results. We were highly rated by the other allies, especially the Americans," said battalian spokesperson Luděk Lávička.

The remainder of the unit will return on June 3.
