    VIET CONG FORCES HAVE BEEN LAUNCHING ATTACKS ON SEVERAL SOUTH VIETNAM TOWNS DURING THE PAST FEW DAYS, INFLICTING HEAVY DAMAGE. THE ATTACKS HAVE TAKEN PLACE ONLY A FEW MILES FROM SAIGON.

    ONE OF THE BIGGEST ATTACKS WAS ON KHIEM CUONG, ADMINISTRATIVE CENTRE OF HAU NGHIA PROVINCE, AND ON DUC HOA, THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE MILITARY HEADQUARTERS, ONLY THREE MILES (K.M.) AWAY.

    SIX HUNDRED ROUNDS OF MORTAR FIRE WERE LAUNCHED ON THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE BASE. AT LEAST FORTY SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT TROOPS WERE WOUNDED. A NUMBER OF CIVILIANS WERE KILLED IN THE ATTACK.

    SOUTH VIETNAMESE MILITARY SOURCES SAID THE VIET CONG TROOPS HELD THE PROVINCIAL TOWN FOR A SHORT TIME, BUT IT WAS SOON RE-OCCUPIED BY GOVERNMENT FORCES.
