VN Gang Attack: Eleven held in killing of Cambodian

VN Gang Attack
Vietnamese authorities have arrested and charged 11 men in connection with the killing of a Cambodian man earlier this week, and Svay Rieng provincial police have launched their own investigation into the case, rights workers said Thursday. The body of Va Daen – a 21-year-old high school student from Svay Rieng’s Romeas Hek district – was found floating in a river in Vietnam’s Tay Ninh province on Wednesday with marks on the torso and head. Han Chhin, an activist for the rights group Adhoc, said that on Monday, the second day of Vietnamese New Year, a group of 11 Cambodians had walked towards a bus station in Tay Ninh in preparation for visit to a nearby mountain. “There was a group of nearly 20 Vietnamese gangsters who gathered around and beat them with iron poles,” he said. Two other men – Va Daen’s brothers, Va Doeun and Va Deth – sustained serious injuries and are receiving treatment in a Vietnamese hospital, Han Chhin said.
