    Background: Buddhist monks have
    been kept on the move by riot police and troops. As the Vien Hoa Dao is still
    sealed off they have not had a chance to congregate. Patrolling troops armed
    with teargas are constantly moving thru the city ready to break up any
    demonstrations. Yesterday they infiltrated the area between the Central Market
    and the U.S. Embassy in taxis, cyclos, &c. and suddenly appeared in a small
    group, raced thru the streets, but after about 1/2 hour were broken up by
    teargas.

    JUSPAO office has been under guard since early morning Friday after the Hue
    office was wrecked by rioting mobs yesterday.

    Took this footage as it may also be useful to keep as library stock - inevitably
    one day JUSPAO will be the scene of a terrorist or rioting attack.
