  • Description

    The people of Hanoi are taking steps to repair their defences after the United States' bombing last month.

    Big signs in the street every few hundred yards (metres) exhort them to greater efforts against the United States, and they are responding by repairing and reinforcing their air-raid shelters, and building new ones.

    The November 21st, raid by United States bombers was the first on the city since October 1968, when President announced a halt in the bombing, although pilotless reconnaissance aircraft are reported to have kept up the tension in Hanoi.

    The North Vietnamese Government has since warned the people that they must be ready for any resumption of the bombing.

    Among the shelters used are dug-outs for one person, which are like neat pot-holes by the side of the road.
