  • Description

    ELEMENTS OF THE NEWLY ARRIVED SOUTH KOREAN WHITE HORSE DIVISION HAVE GONE INTO ACTION AGAINST THE VIET CONG. THE OPERATION AREA IS NINH HOA, NORTHWEST OF NHA TRANG PROVINCE.

    NINH HOA HAS LONG BEEN A VIET CONG STRONGHOLD. THE TASK OF THE SOUTH KOREANS WAS TO CLEAR A HIGHWAY OF VIET CONG, WHO WERE REQUISITIONING PRIVATE VEHICLES FOR USE ON THE HIGHWAY.

    NEXT TO THE UNITED STATES, SOUTH KOREA HAS THE SECOND LARGEST MILITARY FORCE IN VIETNAM -- 34,000 MEN.

    THE OPERATION WAS LAUNCHED EARLY THIS WEEK. THE SOUTH KOREANS, WHO SUFFERED LIGHT CASUALTIES, CLAIMED TO HAVE ELIMINATED 17 VIET CONG. THEY DETAINED SEVERAL SUSPECTS.

    THE AREA WAS ENVELOPED IN A MORTAR BOMBARDMENT BY THE SOUTH KOREANS BEFORE THEY FANNED OUT IN SEARCH OF THE VIET CONG.
