- Story Text: Turkish troops have arrived to supplement the NATO
presence in Macedonia. They are on route to Skopje airport
where they will be based for their tour.
Around 25 trucks carrying military hardware and
Turkish troops arrived from Zenica in Bosnia via Kosovo. They
crossed the border from Kosovo into Macedonia at Blace, which
had been closed since August 18, 2001, because an organisation
called World Macedonian had put up a blockade protesting at
NATO presence in Macedonia.
The route is one that German troops due later in
Macedonia will follow when they arrive.
