Viet Cong Have Bases in Cambodia

Nov. 11, 1961 - Military intelligence sources in South Vietnam estimate that 6,000 Communist troops occupy a number of bases in Cambodia. They said most of these bases were near the border of South Vietnam. The Saigon Government asserts that Communist guerrilla forces (pictured) are using several bases in Cambodia as command headquarters for recently intensified operations against South Vietnam. U.S. military advisors in South Vietnam are convinced that the guerrillas utilize Cambodian territory for attacks against South Vietnamese outposts. The existence of the Viet Cong bases has been confirmed by captured documents and by photographs.
