  • Description

    A Phnom Penh suburb blazed fiercely today (Saturday, May 6) following a North Vietnamese rocket attack on the Khmer Republic capital in which at least twenty-three people died and almost one hundred and fifty were injured. Some of the 122 and 240 millimetre rockets, which severely damaged residential areas of Phnom Penh, also hit the capital's Pochentong Airport and landed close to the South Vietnamese Embassy. At least forty rockets hit the capital during the three-hour attack.

    In a defensive Khmer army attack on the North Vietnamese positions, four communist troops were killed before their units withdrew.
