Background: There were further hold-ups in the exchange of Vietnamese prisoners just south of the Demilitarized Zone. The prisoners arrived late from Saigon where they expressed fears that the authorities were planing to liquidate them. Now there were further delays when Communist officials north of the ???dasefire line along the Thach Han river pleaded a lack of reception facilities. Consultations between officers of the Joint Military Commission and the Communist military command lead to a postponement of the prisoner exchange. The prisoners were finally released two days later.
