Allied forces appear to have regained the initiative in many of South Vietnam's urban areas. Most of the major provincial capitals were reported relatively quiet throughout the night of 4-5 February and into the morning. Bitter fighting still continues in Hue, however, as well as in isolated sections of Saigon and in several large cities and district towns. The Communists also hit at Khe Sanh after a long period of relative quiet. There have been no significant political developments since those reported in the 5 February Central Intelligence Bulletin.
