    Background: In Kampuchea, Vietnamese troops, backing the Phnom Penh government, have launched an offensive against the anti-communist forces of the Khmer People's National Liberation Front (KPNLF), led by former prime minister Son Sann. The KPNLF units are said to have been pushed back towards the border with Thailand by artillery and infantry attacks from the Vietnamese. Since March the 10th, there has been fierce fighting around Sokh Sann, a group of four villages held by the KPNLF until recently. According to Western military sources, the Vietnamese operation has forced about 9,000 villagers to flee towards the Thai border, which is closed to all but the Thai military. KPNLF forces have left their headquarters and moved to the jungle to fight the advancing Vietnamese.
