SAIGON, South Vietnam (LP)-
Waves of helicopters landed
troops on a National Liberation
Front (NLF)-held mountaintop
some 55 miles north of Saigon
under heavy fire yesterday in a
counteroffensive 'against North
Vietnamese thrusts.
The operation had the objec-
tive of carrying out President
Nguyen Van Thieu's standing
orders to attempt recapture of
all territory lost to NLF forces.
The infantrymen landed on
top of Nui Ba Den Mountain
along the northeastern approach-
es to Tay Ninh City after bomb-
ers had softened up North Viet-
riamese positions. The strategic
position was captured by the
North Vietnamese on Jan. 6. It
was once manned by U. S.'
forces who called it the Black
Virgin mountain.
ASSOCIATED Press photogra-
pher Huynh Cong Ut reported
from Tay Ninh that some of
the helicopters were unable to
Land and had to turn back be-
cause of heavy North Vietnam-
ese antiaircraft fire, although
there were no reports of air-
craft being shot down. '

In Cambodia two ammunition
barges reached Phnom Penh
after successfully passing a 45-
mile stretch of the Mekong Riv-
er controlled by insurgents. Es-
corted by outrigger tugs and
barges acting as rocket screens,
the convoy was the first to reach
the Cambodian capital in a
Tug boat crew reported the
convoy traveled for 36 hours
under constant rocket, mortar
and machine-gun fire from the
insurgents.
IN PHNOM Penh a terrorist
hurled a plastic explosive at a
Cambodian government offic-
ial's speeding motorcade. He
missed the cars and instead
hit a pedicab, killing two wo-
men and injuring the pedicab
driver, an American witness to
the incident said.
The explosion was the first
case of terrorism in Phnom
Penh in several months.
Only hours before the counter-
offensive was launched in South
Vietnam, NLF gunners fired a
half dozen Soviet-built 100-pound
rockets into Tay Ninh, killing
five persons, wounding 31 and

territory
setting afire 110 homes in a
military housing project, the Sai-
gon military command said.
One of the rockets scored a
direct hit on the city jail, where
one inmate was killed and 30
were wounded, sources reported
THOUSANDS of residents
have left the city of 35,000 and
many shops have closed because
of continuing rocket and mortar
attacks and fear of an all-out
assault following the fall of the
provincial capital of Phuoc
Binh City, 70 miles to the north-
east, on Jan. 7.
In a broadcast by Radio Hanoi
the North Vietnamese Foreign
Ministry criticized President
Ford's efforts to have Congress
increase aid to the Saigon gov-
ernment. A ministry spokesmai
said Ford's statements a r e
"completely at variance with
the spirit and letter of the
Paris agreement on Vietnam.'
