    Background: PORX KORNG, A FORMER NORTH VIETNAMESE-HELD STRONGHOLD, WAS RE-OCCUPIED BY KHMER GOVERNMENT TROOPS IN A SUCCESSFUL ACTION ON SUNDAY (YESTERDAY). EARLIER, KHMER GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS HAD TOLD UNITED STATES NEGOTIATOR DR KISSINGER THAT THEY WANTED TO PLAY AN ACTIVE PART IN ANY PEACE NEGOTIATIONS WITH NORTH VIETNAM BUT WOULD EXPECT NORTH VIETNAMESE TROOPS TO LEAVE THE KHMER REPUBLIC IN THE EVENT OF A CEASEFIRE. POR KORNG ON ROUTE FIVE HAD BEEN CUT OFF BY THE NORTH VIETNAMESE FOR A WEEK, AND HIGHWAY EZM RICE SUPPLIES HAD BEEN GETTING VERY LOW AGAIN IN THE DISTRICT. THE KHMER TROOPS REOCCUPIED THE VILLAGE AFTER HEAVY/BOMBARDMENT AND CANON FIRE. MANY HUTS IN THE VILLAGE WERE FOUND/THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN DESTROYED BY FIRE.
