Khmer Rouge guerrilla attacks have spread to more regions of Cambodia and a 400-strong rebel force has been seen only 25km (15 miles) from the capital, Reuter reports from Phnom Penh. United Nations sources said a rebel force had been sighted near the hamlets of Phum Trapeang, Phum Totoeung and Phum Prek, north-west of Phnom Penh. Heavy shelling was reported earlier in the western town of Treng, where government army units were fighting an encircling action by the Khmer Rouge.
