The World

Vietnamese troops overran a Cambodian mountaintop command post of the Khmer Rouge guerrillas after heavy fighting, Thai military officers reported. It was the third guerrilla outpost to fall since Vietnamese troops began their drive late last month. Vietnamese troops were reported trying to pin the guerrillas against the Thai border in the Phnom Malai area of western Cambodia, and thousands of civilian followers of the guerrillas fled into Thailand to escape.
