Vietnam arrests anti-China protestors
(05-14 17:10)

Police in Vietnam say they've detained around 500 anti-China protesters after more than a dozen factories at an industrial park in the south of the country were looted and torched yesterday.
The rioters wrongly thought the factories are mainland-owned, when in fact many are Taiwanese businesses.
Several Hong Kong residents are thought to work at the industrial park, and the Immigration Department says one Hong Kong person has contacted them for advice on the quickest way to get back to the territory.
The department said it had notified the Chinese embassy in Hanoi about the case. In light of the rioting, the SAR government has issued the amber outbound travel alert for Vietnam, warning people to exercise caution and avoid protests. --RTHK
