      BRATISLAVA, Slovakia, 1 August 03 (AP)--

      Over 60 Slovak military engineers have left for Iraq to help in demining
      efforts there, the Defense Ministry said Friday.

      Slovakia agreed to deploy 85 military engineers to Iraq. The soldiers were
      flying to Kuwait and from there Al Hillah, south of Baghdad. The Slovak
      troops will be under Polish command.

      The deployments began Monday and were expected to be completed Friday.

      During the war in Iraq, this former communist country of 5.4 million
      supported the U.S.-led coalition and sent an anti-chemical unit to KUWAIT.
