Survivors of Vietnam's My Lai massacre remember 'darkness and silence'

Survivors of Vietnam's My Lai massacre remember 'darkness and silence'By James Pearson and Minh Nguyen QUANG NGAI, Vietnam (Reuters) – It took Pham Thi Thuan a while before she could muster the courage to fetch water from across the ditch where 170 of her neighbors, most of them women and children, were killed by U.S. troops during the Vietnam War. It was the worst recorded U.S. war crime committed in Vietnam, but preparations for a 50th anniversary ceremony at the site, now a memorial to the victims, are low key. Because of those better relations, Vietnam is not dwelling on the pain of the past, a senior Vietnamese government official told Reuters.
