Friday marked the 50th anniversary of the My Lai massacre, when U.S. troops sacked a city and killed 504 unarmed civilians during the Vietnam War. Provincial official Dang Ngoc Dung said at a ceremony in the town of My Lai that the massacre was a typical case of “cruel crimes committed by aggressive and hostile forces” during the war. He did not name the United States but said Vietnam wants to set aside the past and work toward a better, peaceful future.
