    Background: Communist forces are still pressing their attack on the South Vietnamese capital, Saigon, on at least four fronts, but the defending troops have had some small successes.
    At least 10 Viet Cong sappers crossed a river near the town of Thu Thua on Wednesday (9 April). They were driven off in some house-to-house fighting on Thursday morning.
    At Tan Huong, about 50 kilometres (31 miles) southwest of Saigon on Highway Four, 15 North Vietnamese were killed on Wednesday night. They were caught in a South Vietnamese offensive alone the highway.
    The bodies were bound and left lying at the side of the road as a warning to local villagers of what could happen to communist sympathisers.
    On another section of Highway Four, however, at Long An, two Viet Cong rockets hit a South Vietnamese army supply dump, setting it on fire.
    Flames and smoke from the fire could be seen for miles around.
