RCAF in new victory

T he RCAF has reported a new victory in its war against the Khmer Rouge with the

capture of Arn Sess, a strategic border access point near the far-north frontier

with Thailand.

"All the Khmer Rouge guerrillas have fled towards the

border - they left behind some weapons and ammunition." Army Chief of Staff

Lieutenant-General Ke Kim Yan said.

He added three government soldiers

were wounded.

The key border access point, 300 km north of Phnom Penh,

was formerly known as UN Checkpoint CT-1.

The capture of Arn Sess will

relieve pressure on Choam Khsan, 28 km south, and allow hundreds of displaced

people to return to their homes.
