    Background: The bodies of the men killed last Sunday in an Internal Control Commission helicopter close to the North Vietnamese border were flown to Saigon yesterday (Monday). Members of the four nation Commission formed a guard of honour as the bodies of the nine victims were off-loaded, each draped in the national flag. The dead included a Canadian, two Hungarians, one Indonesian, two Viet Cong liaison officers and the helicopter crew: two American civilians and a Filipino. The exact cause of the crash has not yet been officially confirmed but it is believed the helicopter was brought down by a ground to air missile while flying on an investigatory mission across Communist-held territory. Communist spokesmen have expressed regret at what they termed "a regrettable accident".
