(Studio) North Vietnam have also been laying seige to An Loc, South Vietnam, 60 mile north of Saigon. Film by South Vietnam soldier inside An Loc presented.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(An Loc) Only 1 road, Highway 13, links An Loc with outside world. Communist base areas nearby. Rubber trees surrounding town give North Vietnam troops cover. Ideal location for North Vietnam to use to draw in South Vietnam, cut them off, and pound them. An Loc has been reduced to rubble by bombing. North Vietnam committed 100 tanks to An Loc battle. Civilians trapped in center of town. Many killed.
