DA NANG (VNS)— Nearly 100 tourism guide books with wrong information on Viet Nam's sovereignty were confiscated at central Da Nang International Airport on Monday.

These books, printed in China, were brought to the country by a Chinese tour guide.

According to the airport's Customs Office, Viet Nam's map contained in the books were without the Spratly (Truong Sa) Islands and Paracel (Hoang Sa) Islands.

The tourist guide said he bought these books in Guangzhou to bring to Viet Nam to hand out to tourists visiting Da Nang.

Earlier in March, the office confiscated and destroyed 480 publications of a Taiwanese company, TCIE, based in the city's Hoa Khanh Industrial Zone. They included maps of Viet Nam without the Spratly (Truong Sa) Islands and Paracel (Hoang Sa) Islands. — VNS
