VINH PHUC — Police arrested seven wood poachers on Friday for illegally chopping down thousands of trees from a one-ha area in the protected forest in northern Vinh Phuc Province's Ngoc Thanh Commune.

The poachers, aged 27-52, admitted to the police that a local man hired them to chop down the trees.

The man said he bought the forest area from vice chairman of the communal People's Committee but both were unable to present legal documents allowing them to exploit the forest. — VNS
