Phnom Penh (Reuter) - Khmer Rouge guerrillas yesterday released without conditions 11 United Nations peace-keepers they had kidnapped and threatened with execution, a UN spokesman said. The confrontation was the most serious yet between UN personnel and the guerrillas, who are refusing to implement a peace agreement for Cambodia signed last year.

The 11 UN personnel were in good health and unharmed after their two-day ordeal, a UN spokesman said.
