    Background: On Sunday (21 March) a guerrilla unit sank a Cambodian ferry on the Tonle Sap River nearly 20 miles north of Phnom Penh. The loss of the vital river ferry, which was hit by a rocket, broke the Government's supply line alone Highway Six leading to important military installations in both central and eastern districts. It also severed the link between the capital and government troops attacking a Viet Cong regional headquarters at Bos Khnaor. Nine battalions of Cambodian troops, led by General In Tam, are at present massing for an attack on the Viet Cong stronghold.
