    Background: About 200 South Vietnamese students clashed with police in Saigon on Saturday (16 May) during a protest against the detention of the student leaders in demonstration over recent weeks.

    The violence started after students had held a memorial meeting for a girl killed in anti-Government riots in 1963. Police fired tear gas at the students in an attempt to disperse them. Onlookers in Saigon's central market, were forced to flee the choking clouds of gas.

    The students reformed on the steps of the National Assembly building where they chanted slogans condemning the detention of students leaders. More tear gas canisters were fired by police and eventually the demonstrators were cleared from the area.
