Clinton calls on Laos to find missing activist

Published: 01.17.13, 00:08 / Israel News

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is urging Laos to investigate the disappearance a month ago of a prominent social activist and reunite him with his family.


International pressure is growing on the authoritarian government in Vientiane to account for Sombath Somphone, 60. Television footage shows him being detained by police in Vientiane on Dec. 15, and then driven away in the company of two unidentified men. Clinton's statement called on the government to pursue a transparent investigation and to do everything in its power to bring about his "immediate and safe return home." (AP)
