BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - About 160 North Dakota National Guard soldiers are back in the United States after ash from the Iceland volcano delayed their return.

The Guard says the soldiers with the 231st Maneuver Task Force and the 141st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade arrived Sunday morning at Camp Atterbury in Indiana. They'll go through demobilization before returning home next week.

The soldiers initially were not expected home until July or August, but the military's plans changed and they were due back last week.

About 500 North Dakota soldiers remain in Kosovo as part of a larger NATO peacekeeping force.
