More than 700 Indians arrived here Friday on board the first ship to leave Kuwait since the Iraqi invasion. The exhausted refugees made the three-day voyage with little to eat except bread and tuna fish. "We had hot, oily water to drink," said a young man named Rajiv, an engineering student from New York who was visiting Kuwait when the Iraqis struck on Aug. 2. "But we are safe now." Sweat streamed down his face, and his eyes were bloodshot from the sun and lack of sleep.
