    Background: In Cambodia on Wednesday (MARCH 10), Government forces battled with Viet Cong guerillas for nearly two hours on a hill near the south western village of Srang.

    Recent encounters with Viet Cong forces have been the trend of the war in Cambodia; but the battles seem to be a series of small skirmishes.

    No details of Viet Cong losses were available, but VISNEWS cameraman Yosep Lee filmed seven dead Viet Cong. Cambodian Government forces reported no casualties.
