Seven Czech military police instructors and three military police officers left on Sunday for Iraq, where they will train local forces, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said. The instructors will replace colleagues who have been operating at a base in Baghdad and will remain in place for six months.
The other three officers will help protect a 30-person Czech aviation advisory team based in the country. A week ago the Czech Army sent 12 military chemists to Iraq.
