"12 Still Holding Out in Long Binh Prison."
New York Times, September 25, 1968, p. 2.
A report on the riot at the Longbinh prison for American soldiers indicated that twelve
African-American prisoners still maintained control over one section of the stockade.
At this point the tactic used by the government was to wait them out, using no force to
end the situation, bringing them only food and water.
