18 years old Thang, an agent orange victim, waits for customers at a market in Hanoi
18-year-old Thang, believed to be an Agent Orange victim according to locals who know his mother, waits for customers at a market in Hanoi January 9, 2012. Thang, who cannot remember his full name and comes from Vietnam's central province of Thanh Hoa, sells toothpicks and earbuds at a market in Hanoi. Witnesses say he also receives donations from passers-by. Agent Orange is a dioxin-laced defoliant sprayed by U.S. troops during the Vietnam War to destroy crops and jungle cover shielding guerrillas. U.S. warplanes used it the first time on August 10, 1961, in Vietnam's central Kontum province, dropping about 18 million gallons of the defoliant on southern Vietnam for most of the 1960s. The defoliant released dioxins that have been blamed for health problems with claims of dioxin poisoning by more than three million people in Vietnam.
