»BERICHTE VON DREI ... drei tot waren.« - »3 Dead Enemy Soldiers Reported Chained to Gun - Allied Officers in Hue Assert the Bodies Were Discovered When School Was Taken
HUE, South Vietnam, Feb. 16 (Reuters) - Allied officers said today that three North Vietnamese soldiers had been found here, chained to a machine gun and left to die defending their position.
The three men were shackled around the ankles to the stock of a Chinesemade light machine gun. They held their position with other enemy troops for two days in a school until they were overrun yesterday by the South Vietnamese Fifth Marine Battalion.
The allied officers said the chained men were all privates. The men were barefoot and their bodies riddled with bullet holes.
›They were little men, same size as me,‹ a South Vietnamese marine only 5 feet tall said.
Maj. Paul Carlsen of San Clemente, Calif., an adviser with the South Vietnamese marines, said the chain binding the men to their gun was like a heavy dog chain and had links about half-an-inch wide.
The Machine gun, which has a circular magazine and is commonly used by both North Vietnamese and Vietcong troops, can be operated by one man. It was apparently intended that after the first man was killed the two others would operate the gun until all three were dead.«, NYT 17.2.1968.
