PHNOM PENH (AP) - The Khmer Rouge ended a three-month boycott of military meetings with the United Nations yesterday in preparation for rejoining the peace-keeping process in Cambodia. Tep Khunnal, a guerrilla official, said yesterday that the Khmer Rouge had started attending the military meetings again because it felt its demands would be met. The chairman of the meetings, Lt-Gen John Sanderson, said he thought the guerrilla group had agreed to attend the meetings because it wanted to resume contact with UN peace-keepers and the other factions. But last week the Khmer Rouge attacked three villages, killing one teenager and wounding nine others, a UN spokesman said yesterday.
