Fighters found in Vietnam grave

Breaking News

Developers say they have discovered the remains of at least 50 anti-French resistance fighters and war victims at a site in central Hanoi.

Workmen found bones and skull fragments while clearing the site of a market.

They also found handcuffs and leg irons, which suggested that some of the dead were prisoners.

The grave dates from 1946-1947, when fighting between Vietnamese resistance and French troops reoccupying the country after World War II broke out.

Although the authorities attempted to remove the remains in 1982, new finds prove that there are still a large number of bodies left behind.
