Mass grave of communist soldiers found in Viet Nam

Government officials in Viet Nam announced today that they have found a mass grave of communist soldiers, according to The Associated Press.

The soldiers were killed during the Viet Nam war while attacking a military station of the U.S.-backed South Vietnam government. The grave was found after military officials were tipped off by U.S. and Vietnamese soldiers who fought there.

According to the article, “Authorities are searching the site, which they believe may contain the remains of several hundred Vietnamese soldiers.” Six sets of remains have been found so far, but none of the bodies were identified.

The remains will be buried in a military cemetery later this week.
