Thailand, Vietnam exchange charges

The Thai-Kampuchean border was relatively quiet, but the war of words raged between Thailand and Vietnam. Thai military commanders said they were prepared to send a second wave of air strikes, perhaps with napalm, against Vietnamese troops who crossed into Thailand from Kampuchea over the weekend. Senior Army officers said Thai fighter-bombers had inflicted heavy casualties on the Vietnamese soldiers, but had not flushed them out of border positions. Vietnam denied charges it violated Thai territory in its offensive against Kampuchean rebels, and accused Thailand of sheltering rebels.

Caught in between are Kampuchean refugees who have been driven into Thailand. By Thai estimates, they number 50,000.
