  • Description

    Thousands of residents of Hanoi staged a mass victory celebration last Wednesday (30 April) when loudspeakers throughout the capital announced the "liberation" of Saigon.

    Huge crowds paraded through the North Vietnamese capital setting off firecrackers, blowing horns, beating drums and waving flags and banners as the news was announced at 5 p.m. local time
    Red flags and streamers flew from virtually every rooftop, the Hsinhua News Agency reported, and school children led processions through the main streets
    As night fell and coloured lights glowed along the city's central thoroughfares, the jubilation reached its peak, the news agency said, with crowds carrying posters of the late Ho Chi Minh around the Hoan Kiem Lake and through Chi Linh Square and the Municipal Theatre Square
