40 years on, fleeing Vietnamese take to seas again

In this photo taken on April 14, 2013, a group of Vietnamese asylum seekers are taken by barge to a jetty on Australia's Christmas Island. Nearly 40 years after hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese fled the country's Communist regime by boat, a growing number are taking to the water again. The latest boat carrying Vietnamese cruised into Australia's Christmas Island one morning last month, according to witnesses on the shore. (AP Photo)
