A mass grave of Vietnamese soldiers who are believed to have died in 1968 during the war against the US was recently found in central Vietnam with the help of a local psychic.
After weeklong excavations in central Quang Ngai province, authorities found one grave with two sets of remains and another with 40-45 sets of remains, local newspaper Vietnam News reported on Thursday.
A map of the grave's location in the province's Quang Ngai city was drawn by psychic Nguyen Khac Bay from Hanoi. It showed two graves located 20 metres from each other.
All the remains are believed to belong to soldiers from Battalion 406, which lost 192 soldiers during the fierce fighting. The remains of 68 soldiers from the battalion had been found earlier.
