Rebel forces defend Cambodia

BANGKOK, Thailand (AP)-Sharp
fighting was reported in many parts of
Cambodia yesterday as Vietnamese
troops battled die-hard remnants of the
shattered Cambodian army which was
employing classic guerrilla war tactics
against the invaders..
Military analysts in Bangkok, ex-
plaining the tactics, said'the Cam-
bodians were scattering under Viet-
namese pressure, regrouping and then
staging surprise hit-and-run attacks.
WESTERN SOURCES also said at
least one provincial capital earlier
thought to have fallen in the Viet-
namese blitz across Cambodia was still
controlled by troops loyal to the ousted

Phnom Penh government of Premier
Pol Pot.
The sources said Vietnamese troops
were trying to conquer the provincial
capital of Pursat, but that fighting was
continuing.
Fighting also was reported near or in
another northwestern provincial seat,
Battambang, as well as in areas of
eastern Cambodia that the Vietnamese
overran at the start of their campaign
late last year.
SENIOR THAI intelligence sources
said Vietnamese forces were engaged in
heavy fighting near Sisophon, 30"miles
east of the Thai border. Clashes also
were reported in Nimit, about 13 miles
from the frontier, and around Kompong

Som, Cambodia's only deep-water port.
Thair and Western sources
monitoring the conflict from Bangkok
and Thai frontier said the rapid Viet-
namese armor-led thrusts-which
covered up to 300 miles in three
weeks-created problems of logistics
and infantry-tank-coordination for the
invaders. A number of Vietnamese
tanks that advanced ahead of the Viet-
namese infantry were destroyed by
Cambodian troops, Thai sources said.
A surprisingly small number of Cam-
bodian soldiers have fled across the
border to Thailand, and observers said
they were beginning to believe the
Cambodian vows to "fight to the end."
Meanwhile, the Soviet Union on Mon-
day vetoed a United Nations Security
Council resolution condemning the
Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia.
The vote was 13-2, with the Soviets
and Czechoslovakia casting ballots
against the resolution, which was spon-
sored by seven nonaligned members of
the 15-seat council. As one of the five
permanent members on the council, the
Soviet Union's "no" vote was the same
as a veto.
The resolution had been worded to try
to get more votes than a previously in-
troduced Chinese proposal that
"strongly condemns" Vietnam and
called for a withdrawal of Vietnamese
forces from Cambodia.

Faring considerably better in the fluffy stuff than the cops on their backs, a pair of mounted police horses cross the C
River on Michigan Avenue. Last weekend's storm dumped 20.5 inches of snow on the Windy City.
