    Background: THE LAOTIAN CROWN PRINCE HAS BEEN VISITING MUONG KASSY, ABOUT 120 MILES (193 KILOMETRES) SOUTH OF THE ROYAL LAOTIAN CAPITAL, LUANG PRABANG, IN THE COUNTRY'S NORTHERN SECTOR. THE PROVINCE WAS CAPTURED BY GOVERNMENT FORCES TWO MONTHS AGO AFTER EIGHT YEARS OF PATHET LAO RULE AND THE VILLAGERS WERE ABLE TO WELCOME THEIR FIRST ROYAL VISITOR SINCE 1957.

    THE PRINCE ARRIVED BY HELICOPTER TO A WELCOME FROM HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE. HE WAS OFFICIALLY RECEIVED BY OFFICERS OF A GOVERNMENT MILITARY UNIT, BUT FLAG-WAVING SCHOOLCHILDREN GAVE HIM A SPECIAL GREETING.

    PRINCE SAVANG WENT ON TO TOUR THE VILLAGE IN A PROCESSION LED BY A BAND OF MOUNTAIN TRIBESMEN PLAYING THEIR BAMBOO INSTRUMENTS. IN THE VILLAGE THERE WERE MORE PEOPLE TO WELCOME HIM WITH FLOWERS.
