Vietnam goes online to celebrate 45 years since end of war

Reunification Day ceremony follows lifting of coronavirus lockdown

HO CHI MINH CITY -- Vietnam has largely lifted a nationwide lockdown to contain the new coronavirus, but events will be drastically curtailed when the country celebrates Reunification Day on Thursday.

The national holiday, held every year on April 30, will commemorate the 45th anniversary of the liberation of Saigon, also known as the fall of Saigon, now called Ho Chi Minh City, which marked the end of the Vietnam War.
