The U.N. peacekeeping force in the South Cotabato province of Bicol will soon begin to move to a newly built village in the province.

U.F.O. and Special Forces teams are also expected to arrive at the village in about three weeks.

The U.K.-based International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies said the peacekeepers will be moving into the village of Likabao in the region.

It said the mission is being established to help establish a safe haven for internally displaced people.

A peacekeeping mission has been established in the Philippines in the wake of a deadly attack on the U.C.L.A. campus by suspected members of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front.

The mission will consist of about 300 troops.

It is expected to be the largest U.M.F.-led peacekeeping operation in the Pacific.
