Cambodia seizes ship

WARSHIPS from the U.S. 7th
Fleet reportedly were ordered
to begin moving in the directio
of the Gulf of Thailand.
The United States considers
all waters more than three miles
seaward to be in international
territory. But Cambodia is one
of about 40 nations that claim
jurisdiction over waters extend-
ing 12 miles from shore.
S i n c e Mayaguez reportedly
was within eight miles of an
island claimed by Cambodia,
this apparently would put it in
waters claimed by Cambodia
but viewed as international ter-
ritory by the United States.
"1. . We consider it outside
of territorial waters," said Nes-
THE PRESS secretary said
the ship was not a spy vessel.
He said the United States has
had no communication with the
Cambodian government but that
"as far as we know" no one
aboard ship was injured during
the seizure.
Nessen said radio messages
from the ship saiddit was "fired
upon and boarded by Cambo-
dian armed forces from a Cam-
bodian navaltvessel" and then
was forced into the Cambodian
port of Kompong Som.
HE SAID the incident occur-
red early yesterday morning,
Washington time.
Nessen said that President
Ford "considers this seizure an
act of piracy. He has instructed
the State Department to demand
the immediate release of the
ship. Failure to do so would
have the most serious conse-
The Mayaguez was the first

Korea on Jan. 23, 1968. The

Bucher, who was captain of the
Pueblo when it was seized, said
in Ponay, Calif., that the United
States had an obligation to re-
trieve the Mayaguez. -
"They should take whatever
steps are necessary to get the

no U.S. ships were close to the

They said the warships ordered
to move toward the Gulf of

JAVITS, an arcihtect of the
1973 War Powers Act, said he
believes Ford would have the
right to use military forces to
retrieve the ship. The law gives
the President the right to intro-
duce military force into hostili-
ties for up to 50 days to protect
Sen. James Buckley (Con.-R-
N.Y.) urged the President "to
order immediate punitive air
and naval attacks on appropri-
ate targets in Cambodia."
"In no other way can we un-
derscore the fact that we will
no longer tolerate acts of inter-
national banditry," said Buck-
ley. "In no other way can we
guarantee the future safety of
American vessels in interna-
tional waters."
BUT. SEN. Charles Percy (R-
Ill.) said information was too
scanty to determine whether the
seizure was an act of individual
piracy or "a carefully planned
plot to embarrass the United
He said radio reports from
the ship indicated that none of
the boarding party spoke Eng-
lish. Percy speculated that if
the attack and seizure of an
American vessel had been plan-
ned by the new government,
there would have been someone
-who could have communicated
with the crew in English.
Percy said it would be un-
wise for Congress to take any
action until more is known.
SEN. JOHN Sparkman (D-
Ala.), chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,'
said, "We ought to go after it."
He said he would favor the
use of any necessary force to
get the ship back.
