During the period 3-8 August 1967, members of the Fifth Russell Tribunal Investigation Team were escorted to cities in the vicinity of Hanoi to witness the bomb damage. All of their traveling was done at night by automobile. The roads over which they traveled were in a bad state of repair and in many places could not be used by a vehicle larger than a small truck. A Vietnamese official said that the roads in the area surrounding Nam Dinh City were so bad that it was becoming increasingly difficult for SAM missile transporters to move from place to place.
