    Background: BRITISH TROOPS IN SOUTH EAST ASIA ARE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN PLACED ON AN ALERT IN CASE OF ANY EMERGENCY IN THE BRITISH TERRITORY OF NORTH BORNEO.

    UNDER ARRANGEMENTS BEING MADE BETWEEN BRITAIN AND MALAYA, NORTH BORNEO WILL BE JOINED WITH SARAWAK, BRUNEI, MALAYA AND SINGAPORE TO FORM A FEDERATION OF MALAYSIA. IT HAS PRODUCED SOME OPPOSITION AND LAST MONTH THERE WERE CLASHES BETWEEN BRITISH TROOPS AND ARMED REBELS.

    VISNEWS FILM, SHOT ON THE BORDER AREA OF NORTH BORNEO AND INDONESIA, SHOWS SUPPLIES BEING DROPPED BY BRITISH AIR FORCE AIRCRAFT TO TROOPS OPERATING ALONG THE BORDER.

    OFFICIAL SPOKESMEN HAVE GIVEN LITTLE INFORMATION OF ACTIVITY IN THE AREA IN THE PAST FEW DAYS EXCEPT THAT FULL PRECAUTIONS HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO PREVENT THE LIKELIHOOD OF ANY TROUBLE ALONG NORTH BORNEO'S BORDERS.
