The deadly legacy of Agent Orange

17 March 2014

More than 40 years after the end of the Vietnam War, the Vietnam government estimates that half a million children have been born with birth defects, directly linked to the dispersal of vast quantities of Agent Orange by US planes. With rural families often too poor to care for disabled children, many are abandoned at orphanages.
