Buddhist demonstrations in South Vietnam [while increasingly concerned with continuing Buddhist demonstrations, Pres. Diem is still unwilling to take more than limited, piecemeal measures to alleviate Buddhist grievances. Buddhist leaders promise more demonstrations, and evidence is growing that the primarily Buddhist lower ranks of the army are increasingly reluctant to move against demonstrators. Rumors of a possible coup if demonstrations escalate are cited. No hard evidence exists to substantiate Diem's suspicion that Viet Cong are directing Buddhist extremists].
