(VOA News) – The United Nations refugee agency will soon begin its second airlift of Vietnamese hill people who fled their country into Cambodia ‘s remote jungles. Beginning Saturday, the agency will airlift 58 of the so-called Montagnards to Phnom Penh , where they will be assessed for possible resettlement in a third country. Last month, an estimated 200 of the Christian Montagnards who emerged from hiding were taken to the Cambodian capital. U.N. officials are continuing to search for dozens more Montagnards, whom agency workers believe may be hiding out. They fled anti-government protests in their home country last April. Vietnam insists the asylum seekers left the country illegally. It accuses the U.N. agency of luring them across the border.
