7 of 20: A temple, which still stands today, was the focal point of the June 8, 1972 incident. Villagers were inside the temple, thinking they were safe from the conflict. Then Vietnamese planes starting moving in, dropping napalm bombs on the village. That set off a panic. Villagers started thinking the temple was being targeted, so they ran out the doors, through a gate and kept running down Highway 1. (KABC Photo)
