Remains of martyrs on the way home

This is the first repatriation held in the six northern Lao provinces during the 2020-21 dry season.

The remains were discovered by a repatriation team from Military Region 2.

Memorial and burial services for the 13 soldiers are scheduled to be held on January 20 at Tong Khao war cemetery in northern Dien Bien province’s Dien Bien Phu city, while a set of remains of a martyr whose native land was identified will be handed over to Lai Chau authorities.
