SUVA, Fiji Islands (April 27, 1999 - Radio Australia ---Fiji's peacekeepers again have been judged the best in the world, following a skills competition among military units from all nations serving with the multinational force in the Sinai Desert.

The competition, held twice a year, tests the combat and life saving skills of the soldiers, pushing them to the limit of their physical endurance and combat fitness.

A unit of the Fiji army's Second Infantry Regiment, which won the last round, retained the Force Commander's trophy again this time after once again winning the competition.

The competition was attended by Multinational Force and Observers in Sinai Director General Aurthur Hughes and senior Israeli and Egyptian military officers.
