The World

December 17, 1985

Laos told a high-ranking U.S. government delegation that it has selected a second plane-crash site for excavators to search for missing American servicemen, the State Department said. The delegation, headed by Assistant Secretary of State Paul D. Wolfowitz, visited the Laotian capital of Vientiane on Sunday and Monday. It was the first visit to Laos by an official of Wolfowitz's rank since 1978. In February, a U.S.-Laotian team found remains of 13 servicemen in Pakse, Laos. An estimated 700 American servicemen are still listed as missing in action in Laos.
