    SOUTH VIETNAMESE POLICE CAPTURED THREE VIETCONG SUSPECTS DURING A PATROL ALONG THE MEKONG DELTA AT THE WEEKEND. BY CHANGING INTO CIVILIAN DRESS AND PRETENDING TO BE LANDOWNERS, THEY SNEAKED UP ON THE HUT WHERE THE VIETCONG WERE HIDING.

    THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE POLICE MAKE REGULAR PATROLS OF THE DELTA'S MANY WINDING WATERWAYS, WHICH ARE USED BY THE VIETCONG AS INFILTRATION ROUTES. THE PATROLS USE SAMPANS, THE LOCAL FORM OF TRANSPORT, AND WHEN THEY SPOT A POSSIBLE VIETCONG HIDEOUT THEY CHANGE FROM COMBAT DRESS INTO RURAL CLOTHES, HIDING THEIR WEAPONS UNDERNEATH.
