    UNITED NATIONS' MILITARY OBSERVERS HAVE RECEIVED COMPLAINTS OF CEASEFIRE VIOLATIONS FROM BOTH INDIA AND PAKISTAN AND ARE UNDERTAKING TO INVESTIGATE ALL OF THEM, THE SECRETARY-GENERAL, U THANT, SAID TODAY.BUT THE UNEASY TRUCE REMAINS AND THERE'S A BREAK FROM THE FIGHTING FOR THE SOLDIERS.YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) GENERAL MOHAMMED MOUSSA, THE PAKISTANI COMMANDER IN CHIEF, VISITED THE TROOPS AT THE FRONT LINE AND AWARDED DECORATIONS TO SOME OF HIS OFFICERS.THEY RECEIVED EITHER THE CRESCENT OF VALOUR OR THE STAR OF VALOUR.

    ON THE BORDER THERE ARE STILL MANY SIGNS OF THE CONFLICT WITH WRECKED TANKS SHOWING THE SCARS OF THE FORTNIGHT'S FIGHTING, BUT THE CALM IS ENOUGH FOR THE BORDER VILLAGERS WHO ARE NOW RETURNING TO THEIR HOMES.EACH SIDE IS KEEPING A CLOSE EYE ON THE OTHER, ALTHOUGH THE FIRST TWO OF THE UNITED NATIONS' OBSERVERS HAVE ARRIVED.THEY'RE BOTH CAPTAINS, ONE A FINN, THE OTHER A NEW ZEALANDER.

    ANOTHER OF OUR CAMERAMAN WAS ON THE INDIAN SIDE OF THE BORDER WITH THE UNITED NATIONS' OBSERVERS WHEN A PAKISTANI OFFICER, WAVING A WHITE HANDKERCHIEF, WALKED ACROSS NO-MAN'S LAND TO GREET HIS INDIAN COUNTERPART.THEY SHOOK HANDS AND TALKED FREELY OF THE LAST FOURTEEN DAYS OF FIGHTING.AFTER A WHILE THEY SHOOK HANDS AGAIN AND WENT THEIR SEPARATE WAYS.
