(AP) - The bodies of four Vietnamese fishermen captured earlier by unidentified

assailants were found in a Cambodian inlet May 27 and five others were still missing,

the United Nations said.

U.N. spokesman Eric Falt said the nine fishermen were seized around midnight May

26 off Cambodia's only deep-water port, Kompong Som. The four who were found had

their hands tied behind their backs and apparently had been shot, he said.

The Khmer Rouge has been generally blamed for a spate of massacres of ethnic Vietnamese

in Cambodia, some 20,000 of whom have fled to Vietnam in fear of more killings.
