Red Guerrillas Challenge Government BANGKOK, Thailand (Reu- ters) More than trained and armed Communist guerril- las are challenging government authority in provinces bordering on Laos, Cambodia, Burma and Malaysia. In the north the guerrillas are estimated by United States counter.insurgency experts to number On Sept. 20, they climaxed a long string of ambushes and armed clashes with government border patrols by killing the provincial governor of Chiang Rai, his police chief and the third regional army chief-of- staff in a trap. the same jungle-clad prov- ince, the government is faced with a force of Chinese irregu- lars who have set up fortified villages. The irregulars are the rem- nants of the Nationalist Chinese 93rd Kuomintang Division which was driven out of China by the Communists 20 years ago: So far, the government has resisted calls to suppress the ir- regulars, partly because they are at least anti-Communist and the government troops are al- ready hard-pressed. The government has decided to bring its armed forces up to full strength and recall combat troops from South Viet- nam. In Tak province, also on the border with Burma, guerrilla ambushes have halted work on an 80-mile strategic road, much of which crosses opium fields cultivated by rebellions Meo tribesmen. Tak province also harbors about 300 Bumese rebels who work with about Karen mi- nority rebels across the border for the overthrow of the Gen. Ne Win's government in Burma, So far, the Burmese and Karen rebels have, shown no animosity to Thailand. Since the fall of Norodom Si- hanouk as Cambodian head of state in March, when Commun- ist forces swept quickly across the western provinces of Cam- bodia, Thailand has reinforced its border there with armored troops and navy marines from other parts of the country. In the central and southern provinces of Phatthalung, Nak- khon SiThammarat, Surat Than! and Prachuab Kirikhan, which are also on the Burmese border, the situation is reported serious for the Thai govern- ment. U.S. experts say there are signs that these guerrillas are now in contact with the stronger and belter-organized guerrillas operating farther south along the Thai-Malaysian border. The experts say these latter are the remains of the outlawed Ma- layan Communist party and now number between and well-trained men.
