HA NOI (VNS)— Ha Noi's invalids, martyrs' families, individuals and organisations who contributed to the 12-day-and-night campaign "Ha Noi-Dien Bien Phu in the Air" in 1972 will share an award from the Ha Noi People's Committee.
For 12 days and nights from December 18 to December 29, 200 American B52s continuously bombed Ha Noi wreaking death and destruction, especially at Bach Mai hospital, in Kham Thien street and in Ngoc Ha village.
Hanoians staunchly fought back and shot down dozens of B52s, winning a great victory.
More than 5,100 individuals and six organisations will receive rewards, totalling VND7 billion ($330,000). — VNS
