A Few Current events. Tough Pair but a Sad Deal in Vietnam and Two British Girls attacked in Tanzania by some" Really Brave Muslims!"

After a bomb killed Ho Van Thanh’s wife and two of his sons during the Vietnam War in 1973, Ho made a radical life-choice. He took his one-year-old son, and ran into the jungle–never to return–until this week.Now 82-years-old, and too weak to move, Vietnamese officials were able to convince Ho and his son to leave the Central Vietnamese jungle and the treehouse they’d been calling home.
Ho Van Lang–age 41.
Thanh Nien News reported, that Ho and his son, now age 41,  survived on a diet of animals they hunted and wild plants, cassava roots, corn, and sugarcane. The two grew much of what they ate on their own 2.5 acre field.
A modern-day Tarzan, the men wore loincloths made of bark and lived in a treehouse 16 feet off the ground.
The Telegraph reported the two spoke little, with Ho’s son speaking only a few words, and Ho himself none at all.

And tough Times Live reports they were found by villagers who were searching for firewood and alerted authorities, their existence apparently wasn’t entirely unknown to Ho’s youngest son, Ho Van Tri.

Ho Van Thanh-age 82.
“My father is very weak and the doctors are taking care of him, but my brother’s health is fine even though he looks very thin,” said Tri, who was six months old when his father fled into the jungle.
Ho’s youngest son — who was a newborn when Ho disappeared — found the two more than two decades ago, but couldn’t persuade them to accept him or rejoin society, despite annual gifts of salt and oil.

DAR ES SALAAM — Men riding a motorbike threw acid at two British teenage girls in Tanzania’s semi-autonomous Zanzibar region, leaving them with facial, chest and back injuries, a senior police official said on Thursday.
The pair, identified as Kristie Trup and Katie Gee, both 18, are from England’s northern city of Manchester, according to police. Both were flown to Tanzania’s commercial capital Dar es Salaam.
They had been volunteering at a local school in Zanzibar, an island that is popular with international tourists but has suffered a wave of deadly protests last year as supporters of an Islamist group repeatedly clashed with the police.
One of the two British teenage victims of an acid attack is comforted by an unidentified man in a vehicle at the airport in Zanzibar.
