In memory

The Algerian Embassy in Viet Nam on Saturday paid a floral tribute to 15 Algerian journalists and technicians who died in a plane crash in Ha Noi's outlying Soc Son district 40 years ago.

At the ceremony, Algerian Ambassador Cherif Chikhi (middle) remembered the lives of the reporters, who were accompanying the then President of Algeria Houari Boumediene on a Viet Nam visit, when their plane went down on March 8, 1974. A memorial monument for the victims was inaugurated in October 2000 when Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika visited Viet Nam, marking an important milestone in the two countries' relationship. — VNA/VNS Photo Duong Giang
