BINH THUAN (VNS)— The municipal People's Committee on Tuesday fined a company VND200 million ($9,615) following a red sludge spill in the southern central province.

Earlier on November 18, thousands of cubic meters of red mud spilled from a reservoir built for titanium extraction at Binh Thuan Minerals Investment and Trade JSC, flowing into the sea and causing serious environmental damages.

The company was asked to immediately restore polluted areas along the coastline, as well as to co-operate with local authorities and households to determine proper compensation. — VNS
