Uruguayan soldiers arrived in Congo on Thursday, the first members of a multinational force sent to bolster a shaky agreement to end a civil war that has racked Africa's third-largest nation. The 110 South Americans were the first of 2,500 armed U.N. troops sent to help bring an end to the conflict that erupted when rebels took up arms to oust the late President Laurent Kabila in 1998. Five other African nations became embroiled in the 2 1/2-year war.
