Australia to bring home Vietnam war dead


SYDNEY: Australian soldiers killed in the Vietnam war and buried in Malaysia and Singapore will be brought home with full military honors if their families agree, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said Monday. Twenty-four soldiers who died in the conflict lie in Malaysia’s Terendak Cemetery, which sits inside a large, operational military base, and one other in Kranji War Cemetery in Singapore. “We can never restore those who have died in the service of our country but we can and we should offer solace and support to the families left behind,” Abbott told parliament.
