Fear of foot-and-mouth disease has prompted the southern Vietnamese province of Long

An to ban all cow and buffalo imports from Cambodia. Vietnamese state media said

many Vietnamese cattle in the province have been infected with the disease by cattle

imported from Cambodia. The ban is also on dung from the animals, which is sold to

Vietnamese rubber plantations as compost.
