When two Americans were axed to death by N. Korean soldiers

“A vicious and unprovoked murder” - U.S. President Ford, 1976

The North Koreans attacked in an instant, forcing U.S. Captain Arthur G. Bonifas to the ground. Five soldiers crowded around the stunned American officer, hitting him in the head with clubs and axe handles until his body lay motionless, his face bloodied beyond recognition.

Captain Bonifas, married with a son, was scheduled to go home three days later.
