Newest names of U.S. POW's in Korea
The great bulk of the names, the majority with serial numbers and no other identification, have been reported by the Chinese News Agency Hsinhua as signatories to a statement addressed to "The People of America,'' protesting the strafing and rocketing of a POW camp in North Korea by four U.S. Mustang fighter planes on April 22 which caused 32 casualties.
The protest said the POW camp in question "is considered by us as a non-military target area," with "no main roads, railroads,, main lines of communication, supply depots, factories, troops, vehicles or any other objects that could be mistaken for military targets before rocketing and strafing."
The statement expressed "deepest gratitude" for immediate, medical aid given the wounded by Chinese and Korean personnel "with disregard for their own personal safety," and called for removal of U. S. troops from Korean soil.
