Country Report
Laos National Assembly president, Saman Vignaket, in April called for vigilance in the face of hostile forces plotting against the country. His words contrast with comments by other leaders who have dismissed claims that recent bomb attacks are the work of anti-government forces. Officially, the government says that the explosions are the result of business disputes� an explanation which is not plausible. The security forces remain strong and anti-government activity in Laos is not well co-ordinated.
