Laos Overthrow Case Dropped

Hmong General Vang Pao, an important U.S. ally during the Vietnam War, died Thursday near Fresno, California.  He is so highly regarded in the Hmong community that 40,000 people are expected at his funeral, Stephen Magagnini reports in the Sacramento Bee.

Gen. Vang was at one point a defendant in a criminal case charging a plot to overthrow the communist government of Laos.  The general himself was dropped from the case, but it continued against others.  Much of it was thrown out by the Federal District Judge, and what remained was dismissed today, Denny Walsh reports in the SacBee.
