Viets use toxic chemicals, Khmer Rouge charges

Cambodia's ousted Khmer Rouge government has accused Vietnam of killing 17 persons with toxic chemicals in air attacks. The Khmer Rouge radio, believed to be broadcasting from southern China, said a Vietnamese plane sprayed an area in the Leach district of western Pursat Province on Jan. 17 and 20.

Vietnam, which has an estimated 200,000 troops in Cambodia supporting the pro-Soviet government, has denied previous accusations of using chemical warfare in its one-year-old fight against guerrillas of the ousted government.
