CIA dodges Congressional law
by training Cambodians in Laos

news briefs
By The Associated Press

I

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia WA
- Over 40 Cambodian soldiers
have died fighting in Laos as a
result of a bizarre deal involv-
ing the U.S. Central Intelli-
gence Agency, Cambodian and
Laotian government officials.
The soldiers were part of a
contingent sent to a secret camp
to be trained by the CIA. In-
stead of returning to Cambod-

ia, as planned, they were used
in a recent battle on the Bolo-
veas Plateau.
Official circles are reluctant
to discuss Cambodia's involve-
ment in Laos, however, as the
action violates the 1962 Geneva
agreements and the hard press-
ed Cambodians are reluctant to
admit that they have soldiers
to spare.

Apparently one reason for
the use of Laos for training
was that it enabled CIA oper-
atives to circumvent the Coop-
er-Church amendment banning
U.S. military advisors, training
teams or combat soldiers from
Cambodian soil.
Disolution with the project
soon grew among Americans
and Cambodians, however.
Cambodian troops reportedly
felt they had been used for the
worst of the fighting while
American personnel complained
of a lack of cooperation among
Cambodian officers.
As a result of this wrangling,
the program has been term-
inated.

THE SUDAN'S relations with the Soviet Union appeared
in jeopardy today as a result of the African country's anti-
Communist purge,
Sudanese President Jaafar el Numairi ordered Communist party
leader Abdull Khalek Mahjoub hanged yesterday after a military
tribunal convicted him of engineering the abortive coup which
temporarily onsted Numairi from power.
The Soviet Union has been the chief source of arms for
Sudan, and it is probable that Soviet rifles were used to kill
some of the pro-Communists who have died before firing squads.
Moscow has roundly criticized the "bloody terror in Sudan," but
whether the U.S.S.R. will continue to aid the Arab country is as
yet unclear.
THE U.S. BOARD OF PAROLE yesterday denied the appli-
cation by antiwar priests Phillip and Daniel Berrigan for early
release from prison terms for destruction of draft records.
The case of Phillip Berrigan, who is accused of plotting to
kidnap presidential adviser Henry Kissinger, will be reviewed by
the board in January of 1973, board chairman George Reed said.
Reed said the board decided that Daniel Berrigan should re-
main in prison until his mandatory release with time off for good
behaviour on Nov. 23. 1972.
A CONSUMER ADVOCATE said yesterday that an independ-
ent government commission is needed to protect children from
hazardous toys.
Boston Attorney Edward M. Swartz demonstrated toy rock-
ets, dolls, pistols, goggles and blankets he says can cut, bruise or
burn children and condemned the Food and Drug Administra-
tion for being "discouragingly slow with respect to their approach
to dangerous toys" at a Senate Commerce Committee hearing.
Swartz said that many "industry and government spokesmen
seem to demand an actual body count before determining a toy or
other product to be dangerous."
A SWEEP by South Vietnamese troops in eastern Cambodia
launched early yesterday made only minor contact with Com-
munist forces in the area.
The failure to meet any resistance by Communist troops has
led the U.S. command to believe that such forces have pulled back
from the entire area.
Meanwhile, the month-long lull persisted in South Vietnam
and U.S. sourecs reported only minor skirmishes and small shell-
ings of U.S. bases. U.S. B-52 bombers flew raids inside both Cam-
bodia and Laos yesterday.
APOLLO 15 ASTRONAUTS, their spacecraft streaking tow-
ards the moon in defiance of minor problems aboard the ship,
blindfolded themselves yesterday to observe the reaction on their
eyes and brains to a piercing of cosmic rays.
