June 30, 1962 - The South Vietnamese Government charged today that new weapons from Communist China had been given to Communist Viet Cong guerrillas. It demanded action against these “flagrant violations” of the Geneva Agreement. South Vietnam charged that Chinese Communist 57-mm. bazookas, recoilless rifles, and ammunition were being used by the Red guerrillas. It was stated that Chinese Communist bazookas, rockets, submachine guns, and ammunition were captured when a Government convoy fought off a Viet Cong attack on May 13.
