HANOI, Vietnam (AP) - Sen. John McCain has paid a quiet visit to the "Hanoi Hilton" prison where he was held for more than five years during the Vietnam War.

McCain allowed reporters to follow him while he escorted Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina through the prison.

Vietnam's communist government has turned the facility into a museum. It features a display of what is supposed to be McCain's former flight suit, but the senator said the boots didn't look like the ones he wore and his old name tag wasn't on it.

McCain's two-day stop in Hanoi is part of a weeklong Asian tour that is also taking him to Hong Kong, Japan and China.
