A news blurb from the weekend issue, dated 27-28 May 2000, of the
International Herald Tribune:


Alpini Invade Wrong Nation

The Alpini, Italy's crack mountain infantry unit, arrived two hours late
for
NATO drills in the Norwegian town of Kristiansand, having mistakenly
flown
first to Kristianstad in Sweden, Agence Presse-France reported, citing a

local Swedish daily.  All 116 members of the unit, decked in full
camouflage
and wearing their distinctive feathered Tyrolean caps, reboarded their
military transport plane after Swedish police examined their documents
and
told them they were in the wrong country.  Lennard Nilson, the airport
director, said airport staff were unable to contain their laughter as
the
aircraft took off for Norway.  Unlike Norway, Sweden is not a member of
the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization.  (Bloomberg)
