    Background: THE GOVERNOR OF KOMPONG CHAM, MR. Y. TUY, HAS TOLD INTERNATIONAL CONTROL COMMISSION MEMBERS THAT ABOUT 20 SOUTH VIETNAMESE PLANES BOMBED THE CAMBODIAN VILLAGE OF KAAUK THIS MONTH.

    THE KAAUK VILLAGE IS INHABITED ENTIRELY BY CAMBODIANS. IT IS SITUATED NEAR THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE BORDER, ABOUT 100 MILES EAST OF PHNOM PENH.

    THE ALLEGED ATTACK KILLED SEVERAL CAMBODIANS ON THE SPOT OR WHILE FLEEING TOWARDS A VILLAGE IN THE MIMOT AREA. THE VILLAGE AND A BUDDHIST MONASTERY WERE COMPLETELY DESTROYED.

    GOVERNOR TUY THEN REITERATED THE URGENCY FOR A 14-NATION CONFERENCE TO GUARANTEE CAMBODIA'S NEUTRALITY.

    IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE BRIEFING, THE INTERNATIONAL CONTROL COMMISSION MEMBERS WERE FERRIED TO MIMOT WHERE THEY INTERVIEWED THE 600 KHMER REFUGEES WHO FLED TO SAFETY DURING THE ATTACK.

    MEANWHILE DIPLOMATIC SOURCES WERE OF THE OPINION THAT THE 'EVENT' WAS AMPLIFIED TO COINCIDE WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE DELEGATES FOR NORMALISATION TALKS BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.
