QUANG BINH (VNS) — The remains of 32 Vietnamese volunteers and experts who lost their lives in Laos during wartime were laid to rest with a ceremony yesterday.

They were buried at a cemetery in Bo Trach district in the central province of Quang Binh.

The remains were gathered during the 2013-14 dry season beginning in October last year, with close co-ordination between Quang Binh and Laos' province of Khammoune.

At the ceremony, representatives from the two localities offered incense to war heroes who devoted their lives to Laos' national liberation, helping tighten the two countries' special friendship and solidarity. — VNS
