The capital city of Hanoi remained orderly and safe as millions of people from all corners of the nation and international friends flocked to the city to pay tribute to General Vo Nguyen Giap since his death on October 4.

According to the Hanoi Police, at peak times, tens of thousands of mourners gathered around the General’s private house at 30 Hoang Dieu Street and the National Morgue at 5 Tran Thanh Tong Street while millions lined the streets to bid final farewell to the General.

Major General Nguyen Duc Chung, Director of the Hanoi Police, attributed the funeral’s safety and order to people’s good awareness of regulations.
