Vietnamese authorities plan to raze Hanoi convent
Catholic World News - May 17, 2011
Government officials in Hanoi have announced plans to tear down a convent in Hanoi that has served for years as a refuge for women and children in need.
The scheduled demolition of the convent, run by the Sisters of St. Paul, continues a pattern in which the government has appropriated buildings belonging to Catholic parishes and institutions, and converted them to other civic uses.
