Khmer Communist units early this week struck at lightly defended government outposts along Route 4 west of Kompong Speu and now control a 4-mile section of the highway in this area. The insurgents may try to cut Route 4 closer to Phnom Penh in the next few days, and this possibility has kep Phnom Penh from sending reinforcements to Kompong Speu. The Communists are reinforcing their units on an 11-mile stretch of Route 5 northwest of the capital and intend to try to expand their holdings southward.
