4 more Bulgarian dropouts change mind over Iraq

Four more Bulgarian soldiers, who asked to quit Bulgaria's infantry unit in Karbala and return home, have withdrawn their requests. Fifteen soldiers filed requests to return home on Tuesday and on Wednesday two of the soldiers decided to stay in Karbala.

A total of 18 soldiers have filed requests to return to Bulgaria so far, Army Chief General Nikola Kolev explained.

Sixty-two Bulgarian soldiers dropped out of the 480-strong replacement unit following the attack in the city of Karbala on December 27 last year, which wounded twenty-six and killed five Bulgarian soldiers, the country's first fatalities in Iraq.

The Bulgarian troops have been deployed in Iraq as part of the Polish-led multinational contingent.
