WAR BROAD­CASTER ‘HANOI HAN­NAH’ DIES

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

HANOI: Silky-voiced com­mu­nist pro­pa­ganda broad­caster “Hanoi Han­nah”, fa­mous for urg­ing Amer­i­can GIs to leave her coun­try dur­ing the Viet­nam War, has died at 87, friends said yes­ter­day. The ra­dio pre­sen­ter, whose real name was Trinh Thi Ngo, was among dozens of Viet­namese jour­nal­ists drafted by the com­mu­nist regime to in­un­date the coun­try with anti-US rhetoric dur­ing the con­flict that ended in 1975 with the fall of Saigon and Amer­ica’s de­feat. – AFP
