In 1954, Vietnamese emperor Bao Dai appointed pro-Catholic Ngo Dinh Diem as prime minister; Diem became president of South Vietnam the following year. The U.S. government was at first supportive of the anticommunist Diem, but Diem's repressive policies toward the Buddhist majority of South Vietnam eventually caused the United States to withdraw its support. Diem was assassinated by rebels on November 1, 1963.
