  • Description

    Cambodian troops met resistance from about 50 Vietcong entrenched in the Hamlet of Prey Nhoek, 35 miles south of Phnom Penh.

    One Cambodian soldier was killed and two others wounded, one of them shot through the foot.

    Inside the hamlet, the Cambodian troops found one dead Vietcong and several bloodstained fox-holes. Villagers said at least ten Vietcong were wounded and had been carried away.

    The Cambodian Paratroop battalion is said to be the best unit in their Army and their immediate task is to clear Cambodia's main North-to-South Highway. They may eventually link up with American and South Vietnamese Forces in Takeo further South.

    The rate of progress by the Cambodians, however, is slow and the Americans may have withdrawn by the time this vital highway has been cleared and the paratroops have reached the main city in the South.
