We have studied 70 GeV/c K + d interactions from about 10 K events. The inelastic cross-section for three or more prongs is found to be (28.9±0.4) mb. From odd-and even-prong topologies we have extracted topological break-up of K+ n interactions by taking into account spectator corrections, rescattering effects and Glauber screening. The rescattering fraction is found to be 0.06±0.01 which is substantially different from pion and proton interactions. Combining our K+ n data with other existing π±n and p±n we find <n ch>ph - <nch>hn =0.33±0.04 and D/<nch>=0.529±0.003.
