Inscriptions verso C (applied label): (Laos) 6-61 5) CEASE-FIRE INSPECTORS at Vientiane airport. The members \ (Indian, Polish, Canadian) of the International Control Commission are \ charged with insuring the conditions of the cease fire. Their operations \ have been the subject of international controversy, with both East and \ West suspecting them of bias at different times. They have found it diffi- \ cult to visit all crucial areas of the uncertain front. \ Credit: NICOLAS TIKHOMIROFF © 1961 \ MAGNUM PHOTOS
