Biological Warfare Victims
After Laos fell to the communists in 1975,
the Lao People's Democratic Republic (LPDR) resorted to the use of chemical-biological-toxin warfare, known in the media as
"Yellow Rain," to wipe out the Hmong who were the backbone of the U.S. military effort in Laos. These acts
were nothing short of genocide, targeting men, women and children: dispersing the chemical indiscriminately among the many
Hmong villages killing thousands of people. Today, the genocide remains unrecognized by the international community.
These photographs are evidence to those claims.
