DIEN BIEN (VNS) — A ceremony was held in Thanh Nua commune in the northwestern province of Dien Bien yesterday to rebury 29 sets of remains of volunteer soldiers who died in Laos during wartime.

The remains of the soldiers were gathered during the 2013-14 dry season, beginning in October, with close coordination from the Lao side.

At the burial, representatives from the Government, the Military Zone 2 High Command and Dien Bien authorities, along with local people, offered incense to the war heroes, who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of both Viet Nam and Laos. — VNS
