For most of the past few months, the Clinton Administration has been telling the American public that it is planning to deploy about 20,000 U.S. ground troops for peacekeeping duty in Bosnia-Herzegovina--about a third of the 60,000-member force. And that number is correct: The first echelon of that deployment--an advance party of 735 U.S. military personnel--will go to Bosnia early next week to begin paving the way by setting up communications centers and supply facilities.

The Sava River overflowed its banks in the darkness Thursday morning and swept through the U.S. Army's primitive tent town, drenching about 140 soldiers unable to escape the frigid water and causing the evacuation of almost half the soldiers stationed here. No soldiers were seriously injured, although eight were brought to a hospital tent to be watched for signs of frostbite and one officer injured his knee in the rush to evacuate the troops.
