    Background: THE CURRENT WAVE OF HIT-AND-RUN TERRORIST ATTACKS IN SOUTH VIETNAM IS BEING STEPPED UP. ON THURSDAY A GROUP OF VIETCONG RIDING MOTORCYCLES TOSSED A BOMB INTO A SAIGON STREET, KILLING THREE AND WOUNDING SEVEN.

    THE EXPLOSION IN THE CHINESE QUARTER OF CHOLON TOOK PLACE PRECISELY ONE HOUR AFTER PRESIDENT NIXON ANNOUNCED HIS EIGHT-POINT PEACE PLAN.

    POLICE WERE SOON ON THE SCENE AND NEARBY RESIDENTS HAD THEIR HOSES OUT TO WASH AWAY THE BLOOD OF THE VICTIMS. THE BLAST WRECKED A VAN AND DESTROYED A NEWSPAPER SHOP. THE TERRORISTS FLED.

    SAIGON'S MILITARY GOVERNOR SAID THAT SMALL GROUPS OF VIETCONG TERROR SQUADS HAD INFILTRATED THE CAPITAL IN THE PAST FEW DAYS.

    WHEN OUTLINING HIS PEACE PLAN, PRESIDENT NIXON WARNED THAT ANY INCREASED VIETCONG TERROR ACTIVITIES MIGHT HAVE AN EFFECT ON THE UNITED STATES POSITION AT THE VIETNAM PEACE TALKS IN PARIS.
