Poland Said Committed to Iraq War
Poland Said Committed to Iraq War
By MONIKA SCISLOWSKA, Associated Press Writer

WARSAW, Poland - Prime Minister Leszek Miller said Wednesday he expects more public pressure to pull Polish troops out of Iraq as turmoil there increases but insisted his country would not abandon the U.S.-led coalition.

"Poland has made commitments and they must be carried out," Miller said in an interview with The Associated Press at his Warsaw office.

Still, he also said he sees no way for Poland to boost its troop presence beyond the 2,400 soldiers it has in south-central Iraq, where it commands a 9,500-strong multinational force.

As Shiite-driven violence spread in Iraq on Wednesday, militiamen loyal to radical cleric Muqtada al-Sadr clashed with Polish troops in the holy Shiite city of Karbala, and al-Sadr's office reported an aide to the cleric was killed.
