  • Description

    A dynamite charge exploded in the Taiwan embassy in Saigon yesterday (Tuesday), injuring 27 people. The only part of the two-storey building left intact was the second floor conference room, where the diplomatic staff were meeting at the time of the blast.

    The one man killed in the incident, a Vietnamese, died after being shot near the embassy immediately after the explosion. About two hours later a Nationalist Chinese, one of the embassy's advisers, was shot twice outside his home and is seriously ill in hospital.

    Three suspects, one of them a woman, were arrested after the explosion. One of the was men carrying two hand grenades and the women had a pistol in her handbag, said police. Officials said that it was not clear whether the attack was organised by the Viet Cong or by local Communist Chinese, but all three suspects were of Chinese descent.
