Girl believed abducted found unhurt with a suspect

Mai See MouaAnchorage police located an alleged abduction victim late Wednesday after scrambling to find the young woman, who was reportedly kidnapped about 5 p.m.

Police called off the search for See "Maisee" Moua, 18, about 8:15 p.m. She was uninjured, police said.

Moua was found with a male suspect, and both were taken to police headquarters for questioning, police said.

Moua's younger sister told police that several men grabbed Moua, put her in an SUV near 1200 West Dimond Blvd. and drove off, police said.

"She was taken forcefully from her home and put in the vehicle," said police spokesman Lt. Dave Parker.

Moua's sister called 911 and gave dispatchers a description of the vehicle, Parker said. The Department of Public Safety issued an Amber Alert.

Police announced about 6:30 p.m. they'd located the white Saturn SUV. Neither Moua or her alleged abductors were with the vehicle, Parker said. The spokesman could not comment on where the vehicle was found, he said.

Yang LeePolice said Yang Lee, 20, is a suspect, but it was unclear late Wednesday if he was the suspect in police custody.

Parker said Moua and Lee knew each other, but police don't think the two were in a relationship.

Parker said about 9 p.m. Wednesday that the investigation was continuing but was hampered by language and "cultural" issues.

"We're not sure what we have," Parker said. No charges have been filed, he said.

Vietnam, Laos Uprising: 28 Hmong Protesters Killed

Thousands of Viet-Hmong minority political and religious dissidents along the Laos - Vietnam border, who are staging mass protests demanding religious freedom and land reforms from the communist regime in Hanoi, have been attacked by Vietnam People's Army (VPA) troops and security forces in the remote Dien Bien province of Vietnam. Twenty-eight (28) ethnic Hmong people, protesting against government policies, are confirmed dead in recent days, with hundreds more missing, along the Laos -Vietnam border area of the the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (SRV), according to Lao Hmong non-governmental organizations, and the Center for Public Policy Analysis in Washington, D.C.

Large numbers of Vietnam People's Army infantry and mechanized troops, as well as Lao People's Army (LPA) soldiers, were rushed to the Dien Bein border area at the direction of the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces of the SRV on May 3-5, 2011. Ground attack helicopters were also reportedly dispatched from bases in Laos and Vietnam by the VPA, at the direction of the armed forces Chef of Staff of Vietnam. General Tran Quang Khue, and other VPA generals, who dominate the politburo in Vietnam, have reportedly played a major role in the crack-down, and deployment of the armed forces, against the peaceful Hmong protesters.

Vietnam vet to get US honors after burial snub

General Vang PaoLOS ANGELES — The legendary Hmong general who led a CIA-backed "secret army" during the Vietnam war is to be honored in a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Friday, organizers said.

A US Army honor guard will join the ceremony for General Vang Pao and other military leaders at Arlington, three months after US authorities refused appeals for the veteran to be buried there, following his death in January.

An army wreath-bearer and bugler are also to help "honor the Laotian and Hmong veterans, and their American military and clandestine advisors, who served in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War," said organizers.

The event is being co-sponsored by the Lao Veterans of America Institute (LVAI), the Lao Veterans of America, Inc., members of the US Congress, and the US Department of Defense, according to a joint statement.

Vang Pao led his hill people in Laos in a CIA-backed campaign against communist forces during the Vietnam War. Thousands of Hmong later fled to the United States speaking of persecution.

After his death aged 81 in January in California, supporters appealed to bury Vang Pao as a hero at Arlington. The Pentagon said no, arguing that the limited spaces at Arlington were reserved for US combat veterans.

There was no immediate response to requests for comment on Friday's planned event for Vang Pao.

 

 
WikiLeaks cables bare secrets of U.S.-Laotian relations

WASHINGTON — The 2007 U.S. arrest of the late Hmong leader Vang Pao hurt him, but it did wonders for U.S.-Lao relations, classified State Department cables show.

Vang Pao's arrest prompted widespread dismay among Hmong-Americans; at one point, an estimated 3,000 demonstrated outside a federal courthouse in Sacramento, Calif.

Lao officials were "pleased and surprised" by the arrest of the man who'd long denounced their regime, a U.S. diplomat reported. Suddenly, Lao military officers began talking. Bureaucratic barriers shrank. Cross-cultural exchanges became feasible.

"Since the arrests, we have made a surprising amount of progress in areas of our relationship with the Lao government where we had previously experienced difficulty," Mary Grace McGeehan, who was then the U.S. charge d'affaires in Laos, wrote in a June 22, 2007, memo.
