    Background: THAI/KAMPUCHEA BORDER NEAR ARANYAPRATHET, THAILAND

    More than ten thousand Thai troops took part in massive exercises along the Kampuchean border on Friday (5 March). The manoeuvres, which involved members of the army, air force and police, took place during escalating fighting between Vietnamese and Kampuchean guerrillas, not more than five kilometres away inside Kampuchea. Thai military authorities claim a "wet season" offensive by the Vietnamese is imminent, and are concerned that this will involve cross-border incursions.
