Indonesia will delay its deployment of peacekeeping troops to Lebanon by one week for logistical reasons, a military spokesman said Tuesday. It is the second delay to the dispatch of Indonesia's 850-strong force. An advance team of 150 soldiers will now leave on Oct. 17, with the main body of the force leaving in the first week of November, said Rear Admiral Sunarto Syukronoputra. Syukronoputra cited logistical reasons in Lebanon as the reason for the delay.
