    Background: SAIGON ON SATURDAY CELEBRATED THE FEAST OF BUDDHA'S ENLIGHTENMENT. THE FEAST IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT IN THE BUDDHIST CALENDAR, MARKING THE DAY WHEN BUDDHA ATTAINED 'NIRVANA', OR PERFECT BEATITUDE.

    THE FESTIVAL WAS BEING CELEBRATED AS IN PARIS, FRANCE, TALKS WERE RESUMED IN AN EFFORT TO BRING AN END TO THE CONFLICT RENDING VIETNAM TODAY.

    THE DAY OF RELIGIOUS PROCESSIONS, HOWEVER, ENDED WITH SCUFFLES, SHOOTING, AND THE ARREST OF A VIET CONG SUSPECT. SHOTS WERE HEARD DURING A SCUFFLE IN FRONT OF SAIGON'S MAIN PAGODA, BUT NO-ONE WAS HURT.
