QUANG BINH (VNS)— Police in central Quang Binh Province's Quang Ninh District swooped on a coach illegally transporting over 100kg of aloe wood on Wednesday.
The haul, normally used to treat diseases and make jewellery, was found hidden under dozens of coal sacks on the coach, which had a Lao number plate.
The coach owner, 53-year-old Ngo Tri Duc from the district's Vo Ninh Commune, said the product was trafficked from Laos to Viet Nam for distribution. The case is under further investigation. — VNS
