    Background: In Calcutta some two-thousand students marched through the streets yesterday (5 May) in protest against United States moves in Cambodia.

    The Students carried anti-American banners and shouted anti-American slogans, but there were no serious incidents.

    The students marched to the United States Information Services centre where they shouted demands that the United States withdraw from Cambodia.

    They carried with them a effigy of President Nixon which they set alight outside the centre. Police guarded the centre throughout the demonstration.

    Later the Bengal Provincial Students' Federation issued a statement condemning U.S. intervention in Cambodia and demanding the immediate withdrawal of all U.S. military forces from the entire Indo-China area.
