    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ. 8): MADAME NHU: "WHATEVER IS DONE AGAINST THE VIETNAM WILL BE FELT IN AMERICA, TOO. IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO TRY TO KILL AND SUBDUE THE DULY-ELECTED LEADERS OF A COUNTRY JUST BECAUSE ONE WANTS TO TRANSFORM THAT COUNTRY INTO A SATELLITE. TO KILL AND SUBDUE IS EASY, BUT WHAT WILL HAPPEN AFTERWARD? TREASON DOES NOT PAY AND NOBODY CAN RULE VIETNAM WITH JUST MONEY AND PUPPETS. SUCH A CRUEL INJUSTICE AND MISTREATMENT BY A POWERFUL COUNTRY AGAINST A TRUTHFUL AND HONEST ALLY CANNOT GO UNNOTICED AND THOSE WHO INDULGE IN IT WILL ONE DAY HAVE TO ANSWER FOR IT."

    Background: MADAME NGO DINH NHU YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) DENOUNCED THE UNITED STATES FOR THE MILITARY COUP IN WHICH HER HUSBAND AND BROTHER-IN-LAW, VIETNAMESE PRESIDENT NGO DINH DIEM, ARE REPORTED TO HAVE BEEN KILLED.

    IN A VOICE CHOCKED WITH SOBS, SHE TOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN LOS ANGELES: "IF MY FAMILY HAS BEEN TREACHEROUSLY KILLED WITH THE OFFICIAL OR UNOFFICIAL BLESSINGS OF THE UNITED STATES, I CAN PREDICT THAT THE STORY IN VIETNAM IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING."
    JUST WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO HER FAMILY IS NOT CLEAR. REPORTS FROM SAIGON SAY THE BACHELOR PRESIDENT DIEM AND HIS POLICE CHIEF BROTHER (MADAME NHU'S HUSBAND) ARE DEAD.

    MME NHU'S THREE YOUNGER CHILDREN ARE REPORTED UNHARMED IN DALAT, 150 MILES FORM SAIGON. HER ELDEST DAUGHTER, LE THUY, 18, WHO HAS BEEN ACCOMPANYING HER MOTHER ON A U.S. SPEAKING TOUR, WAS AT HER SIDE AT YESTERDAY'S PRESS CONFERENCE. WEARING DARK GLASSES TO CONCEAL RECENT EYE SURGERY, MM. NHU SAID:
    MME NHU'S FUTURE PLANS ARE INDEFINITE. SHE HAS SAID SHE WOULD REJECT ANY OFFER OF POLITICAL ASYLUM FROM THE UNITED STATES. HER LECTURE TOUR OF THE U.S. IN WHICH SHE HAS STOUTLY DEFENDED THE POLICIES OF THE DIEM REGIME, IS DUE TO END SHORTLY.
