    Background: SOUTH VIETNAMESE TROOPS FOUND TEN TONS OF COMMUNIST ARMS AND AMMUNITION ALONG THE CAMBODIAN BORDER ON WEDNESDAY (22 APRIL)
    THE LOCATION OF THE CACHE WAS DISCLOSED BY A VIETCONG GUERRILLA WHO WAS CAPTURED DURING AN OPERATION IN DINH TUONG PROVINCE ABOUT 80 MILES SOUTH-WEST OF SAIGON.

    THE ARMS WERE SCATTERED OVER A WIDE AREA. 110 RUSSIAN-MADE RIFLES WERE FOUND IN HOLES BENEATH BUSHES. AMMUNITION - RANGING FROM MORTARS TO MINES - WAS FISHED FROM LEECH-RIDDEN STREAMS, SEALED IN PLASTIC BAGS. THERE WERE FIVE CACHES ALTOGETHER.

    THERE HAS BEEN CONSISTENT FIGHTING ALONG THE BORDER BETWEEN SOUTH AND NORTH VIETNAMESE FORCES DURING THE PAST TWO WEEKS.

    THE SEIZURE OF THE ARMS COINCIDED WITH A WASHINGTON ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE U.S. HAD SUPPLIED THE NEW CAMBODIAN REGIME IN SECRETLY LATE ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. THE U.S. SAID IT WAS CONSIDERING CAMBODIA'S APPEAL FOR FURTHER ARMS SUPPLIES.
