However, Ihe military command was not moving any more troops or heavy weapons to the west bank across from the insurgents despite intelligence reports that they are planning a large-scale attack on the capital soon. U.S. jet fighters from Thailand bombarded the east bank this morning as hundreds watched from the riverside who pulled alongside that some government soldiers were left near Prek Luong, four miles inland across from Phnom Penh. They said they did not know of any other government forces which remained. The military command conceded Wednesday that insurgents have "infiltrated" into the area and were battling government soldiers in Arei Ksath, two miles from the center of mall in front of the former roy- the capital. al palace. . " denied reports by other East bank villagers crossing military sources that Arei Ksath had fallen, but said Prek Luong and Mat Krasas to Phnom Penh warned journalists trying to reach the other, side to stay away. They said the sparse government units defending the east bank fled two days ago as the rebels moved in. The guerrillas were letting the farmers come and go with their produce but were not letting any Phnom Penh residents enter the villages, they reported. Sailors aboard a navy boat moored in midstream to inspect passing boats told newsmen Khnoung, two miles from Phnom Penh, had been captured. The command said eight houses in surburban Pochen- tong were hit during the brief rocket attack that began at 3 a.m. Four of the missiles landed in a rice field 200 yards behind a military camp and three others hit in a heavily populated refugee area behind the military academy. Weeping survivors wandered through piles of straw and palm fronds that once were their homes as the sun rose. Bodies of men, women and children were laid out, some so blown apart they were unrecognizable. The last rocket attack in the area was Jan. 4, when two persons were killed and 19 wounded. The airport itself was not hit during that attack. It appeared today's attack was aimed at the airport, which is the government's largest military base and only commercial airfield. It has been shelled and heavily damaged several times. "When I heard boom-boom, I knew there were rockets coming in nearby," said Put San, 50, one of the refugees.
