    Background: When the Indochina War spilled over into Cambodia ten months ago, the fighting was in the Fishhook area of eastern Cambodia which the North Vietnamese were using as a base for operations against South Vietnam.

    The North Vietnamese retreated from the Fishhook area at the time. But they have now returned and a new push by combined Cambodian and South Vietnamese forces is dislodging them again.

    The Cambodian High Command have said that the Fishhook rubber plantations have now been cleared of Communists.
