    Background: Three American correspondents, including a woman, have been released after more than five weeks in the hands of pro-Sihanouk forces in Cambodia. Elisabeth Pond (Miss), of the Christina Science Monitor, Richard Dudman, of the St Louis Post-Despatch, and Michael Morrow, of the despatch News Agency, were let loose on Highway One linking Phnom Penh and Saigon on Monday night. On Tuesday night, they held a news conference in Saigon. They were the first of 23 newsmen who have disappeared in Cambodia since March 18 to be released. At least three are known to be dead. The three said that, apart from some rough handling of Morrow and Dudman at first when their Captors thought they were American agents, they had been treated well and well fed during their captivity.
