Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim country, is deploying more peacekeepers to Lebanon to join a UN mission monitoring a cease-fire between Israel and Hizbullah terrorists. Military spokesman Rear Marshal Sagom Tamboen said Thursday that 1,125 army, navy and air force personnel are scheduled to arrive in Lebanon next week. They will replace a 1,000-strong contingent stationed there last year. The first group of 225 replacements left Indonesia on Thursday and will join roughly 13,000 UN peacekeepers in southern Lebanon.
