This film, from the official North Vietnamese agency NDN, shows the prisoners looking, according to reports, 'happy and healthy'. They talked about the future of the Vietnam war.

    The negotiators left with promises to try and secure the prisoners' release as soon as possible, and then collected three other prisoners of war who WERE released. After picking them up at another Hanoi Hotel, they escorted them on the flight home vis Peking, Moscow and Copenhagen, arriving in New York on Thursday. Among the negotiators, who have criticised the United States government for their treatment of the released prisoners, was Mr David Dellinger. He was one of the so-called 'Chicago Seven' involved in the famous trial after being charged with inciting the bloody riot at a party convention in Chicago in 1968.
