  • Description

    South Vietnamese troops on Sunday (May 14) were still battling against fie??? communist opposition to break through to relieve An Loc, fifty-six miles (90 kms) north of Saigon. About ten-thousand communist troops have been besieging, and holding parts of the provincial capital, An Loc, since April 6, and despite continued efforts to reach the beleaguered city South Vietnamese relief forces have been kept at bay.

    But the South Vietnamese have not stopped trying, although they have adopted more cautious tactics. Howitzers and other big guns lay down a blanket of protective fire and infantrymen move forward after it.

    The new approach has enabled the Government troops to clear a small stretch of highway.
