Vietnamese dissident laid to rest

Thich Huyen Quang spent many years under house arrest
The funeral of leading Vietnamese Buddhist dissident Thich Huyen Quang has gone ahead under tight security.
Hundreds of monks and believers had gathered outside a pagoda at the Nguyen Thieu monastery in central Vietnam for the ceremony.
Thich Huyen Quang, who was 87, had spent most of the last three decades in prison or under house arrest.
He led the outlawed Unified Buddhist Church of Vietnam, which refused to submit to communist government control
