Members of the MONATIO (Mouvement National) group brandishing their flag are greeted are greeted by jubilant youngsters as they walk the streets in Phnom Penh 17 April 1975. On New Year's Day 1975, Communist troops led by Pol Pot and Ieng Sary, launched an offensive to oust Lon Nol's Khmer Republic. The Lon Nol governement in Phom Penh surrendered 17 April 1975 after 117 days of the hardest fighting of the war. Immediately after its victory, the PCK ordered the evacuation of all cities and towns. Many of the foreigners and some Cambodians, who couldn't or wouldn't flee Cambodia, took refuge at the embassy from which they were taken by truck to Thailand two weeks later. The Mouvement National (MONATIO) was a small political faction which welcomed the Khmer Rouge upon their arrival in Phnom Penh and were later quickly eliminated.
