BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - In a fast-paced turn of events, police in North Carolina yesterday arrested, and then released, a respected Bakersfield, Calif., elementary school vice principal who is a suspect in the shooting deaths of his ex-wife, her mother and his three small children. Vincent Brothers, 41, had been arrested in the afternoon in Elizabeth City, N.C., for what Bakersfield Police Chief Eric Matlock called the worst crime he had seen in more than three decades in law enforcement.

Pham Van Dong,94, who served as Vietnam's prime minister through three decades of war and reunification, died Saturday, a day before the 25th anniversary of the communists' biggest victory, government officials said yesterday in Hanoi. Mr. Dong, an architect of the communist revolution who combined personal charm with political toughness, had been hospitalized on life support for months before his death, the officials said. They spoke on condition of anonymity. Mr. Dong was among a few revolutionaries who wrested Vietnam from the French, then defeated U.S.-backed South Vietnam to bring the entire country under Hanoi's rule on April 30, 1975.
