  • Description

    Thousands of Cambodians have fled across the South Vietnamese border to escape the fighting. The latest group of 1300 families moved in last week and encamped around a Buddhist temple 2 kilometres from the frontier. The Red Cross has moved in relief supplies including a shipment of mosquito nets. The nets are more welcome even then food owing to the dangers of malaria. So far there has been little sickness among the Cambodian refugees, nor are there any signs of malnutrition.

    The South Vietnam??? authorities can give no exact estimate of the total numbers of the Cambodians who have left their homes during the recent fighting. But it's believed that large areas on the Cambodian side of the border and now virtually uninhabited. The refugees say there has been little ground fighting since most of these areas have been under rebel control for many months. They have Bled to escape American bombing attacks aimed at Communist forces close to the Mekong River who've been trying to prevent supply convoys from South Vietnam reaching the besieged Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh.
