A cease-fire between Laotian and Thai troops took effect Friday, although Laos accused Thailand of last-minute fighting to secure an advantage when the shooting stopped in their border dispute. Talks earlier this week between Thai and Laotian military leaders, aimed at ending three months of fighting over a 27-square-mile strip of border hills, 270 miles north of Bangkok, resulted in a four-point cease-fire agreement on the removal within 48 hours of troops to 2 miles from the battle line .
