Algerian reporters remembered in Ha Noi

HA NOI (VNS)— Officials and staff of the Algerian Embassy in Viet Nam yesterday laid a wreath at a memorial to commemorate 15 Algerian journalists who died 39 years ago in Ha Noi's Soc Son District.

Algerian Ambassador to Viet Nam Cherif Chikhi said that on March 8, 1974, the journalists accompanying the late Algerian President Houari Boumedience to Viet Nam died in an air crash.

The memorial to the victims was inaugurated during Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika's visit to Viet Nam in October 2000. — VNS
