    Background: Saigon police on Thursday arrested an anti-government candidate for next Sunday's National Assembly elections, when they broke up his political rally though the streets of the city.

    The candidate, Mr Tran Tuan Nham, called the rally to protest against a South Vietnamese government order confiscating his posters. Some of them depict President Nixon as another Hitler.

    The rally ran into trouble with the police when it ended just behind the National Assembly Building, where Mr Nham denounced President Thieu, alleging he had rigged Sunday's elections.
