BANGKOK, Thailand — Cambodian guerrillas said Monday that 160 Cambodian government troops mutinied earlier this month and killed 30 Vietnamese soldiers.

A spokesman for the guerrilla group headed by Prince Norodom Sihanouk said in Bangkok that the Cambodians, from an artillery battalion, killed 10 Vietnamese soldiers in the northwestern province of Battambang on Sept. 9 and 20 more last week.

Vietnam invaded Cambodia in 1978, toppled the Khmer Rouge government and set up its own government in Phnom Penh.
