Highway Four Cambodian troops rout Communist Forces (Visnews production number 4744-71)
Cambodian troops fresh from fighting in Laos - not previously known to have been there at all - have just routed Communist forces in a new battle for the vital sea-link of Highway Four. They fought their way to within two miles of a besieged Government garrison at the strategic Pich Nil Pass on Highway Four, according to reports from Phnom Penh on Wednesday (April 28). The troops are from the 201st Battalion who have just spent seven months fighting on the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos under United States military guidance- facts only revealed this week, according to the Visnews Hong Kong Bureau, who handled this film from staff cameraman Neil Davis.
