Thais send in army to deport Laos' Hmong refugees - Times Online

Thais send in army to deport Laos' Hmong refugees - Times Online

Thousands of ethnic Hmong, the mountain people who served as the United States's "secret army" during the Vietnam War, were forcibly repatriated from Thailand to Laos today, despite fears that they face persecution and mistreatment at the hands of the country's communist dictatorship.

The Thai government ignored US pleas to screen the refugees to determine whether any of them had justifiable claims to political asylum, and began transporting all 4,400 of them back to Laos, Thailand's small landlocked neighbour.
