Hmong encampment declared illegal

200 homeless and unwanted

A group of ethnic Hmong refugees camp along a roadside in Petchabun province in northeastern Thailand. Thai authorities decided to give humanitarian aid to the Hmong, but still regard them as an outlaw group. The Hmong fear they will be persecuted by the communist Laos government if they are repatriated because of their Vietnam War-era links to the United States. Many Hmong fought under CIA advisers during a covert war against Lao communists, who took power in 1975. (AP Photo/David Longstreath)
