  • Description

    Communist forces on Wednesday (26 March) hit the outskirts of Danang, the second largest city in South Vietnam, with rocket fire.

    Military sources said the rocket attack during the right was directed at the Danang Air Base, there a United States airlift to evacuate refugees is due to begin either Thursday or Friday.

    Six people were killed when 14 rounds of 12 mm rocket shells struck the area. 34 others were injured.

    Some 300,000 refugees from outlying area have poured into Danang, a government military stronghold on the north-central coast, swelling its normal population of about half a million.

    But Communist advances both north and south of the port city have left it in a dangerously exposed situation with its only supply routes by see or air.
