    Background: CONTINUED FIGHTING IN CENTRAL LAOS HAS LED TO A FRESH INVESTIGATION BEING MADE BY THE INTERNATIONAL CONTROL COMMISSION. ITS MEMBERS - FROM CANADA, POLAND AND INDIA - RECENTLY FLEW TO THAKHET TO BEGIN THEIR INQUIRY.

    ATTEMPTS AT CONSOLIDATING A NATIONAL GOVERNMENT HAVE BEEN DELAYED BY A SERIES OF CLASHES INVOLVING TROOPS OF ALL THREE FACTIONS - THE NEUTRALIST, RIGHT-WING AND PATHET LAO GROUPS.

    GETTING STRAIGHT TO WORK, THE INTERNATIONAL CONTROL COMMISSION VISITED THE THAKHET RESIDENCE OF THE RIGHT-WING LEADER, GENERAL PHOUMI NOSOVAN. HE SAID THE SITUATION WAS "GRAVE - NO LONGER A MATTER OF SMALL SKIRMISHES". THE COMMISSION WAS SHOWN A NUMBER OF WEAPONS CAPTURED, SAID THE GENERAL, FROM PATHET LAO FORCES.
