  SADDAM'S SOLDIERS SURRENDER
Mar 9 2003

Mike Hamilton reports from Camp Coyote in Kuwait

TERRIFIED Iraqi soldiers have crossed the Kuwait border and tried to
surrender to British forces - because they thought the war had already
started.

The motley band of a dozen troops waved the white flag as British
paratroopers tested their weapons during a routine exercise.

The stunned Paras from 16 Air Assault Brigade were forced to tell the Iraqis
they were not firing at them, and ordered them back to their home country
telling them it was too early to surrender.

The drama unfolded last Monday as the Para battalion tested mortars and
artillery weapons to make sure they were working properly.
