Hanoi - A group of Vietnamese boat people who fought forced repatriation to their homeland arrived in Hanoi yesterday after some were manhandled on to a flight from Hong Kong. The 33 men, women and children were deported from a detention camp in Hong Kong after authorities there disqualified them as possible political refugees. They were the first Vietnamese to be sent home by force from the British colony since March.

In Hong Kong, two men, sedated and straitjacketed after they had slit their wrists in a protest on Tuesday, were rolled in blankets to restrain them and carried horizontally on to the plane. AP
