  • Description

    TO STOP THE SMUGGLING OF VIET CONG WEAPONS INTO SAIGON, THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT HAS DECIDED THAT ALL VEGETABLE TRUCKS ARRIVING FROM THE COUNTRY MUST STOP A CHECKPOINTS ON THEW OUTSKIRTS FOR UNLOADING. SHOPKEEPERS HAVE TO COLLECT DELIVERIES FROM THESE POINTS.

    THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT WAS SHOCKED INTO PROMULGATING NEW SECURITY MEASURES AFTER VAST QUANTITIES OF INFILTRATED WEAPONS WERE SEEN IN USE DURING THE GUERRILLA OFFENSIVE ON THE CAPITAL AT THE END OF JANUARY. THE SCREENING OF TRUCKS - WHICH PROVIDE EASY HIDING PLACES - WAS INTRODUCED AS PART OF THE RESULTING SECURITY MOVES, AND CAME INTO EFFECT LAST WEEK (26TH FEBRUARY).
