QUANG NINH (VNS) — The Customs seized a truck illegally carrying nearly 800 pigeons from China to Viet Nam across the border in northeastern Quang Ninh Province's border gate Mong Cai City on Sunday.

Nguyen Van Dung, 43, the driver, failed to show legal documents to prove the origin of the pigeons. He admitted that he was hired to transport the pigeons to an unknown person.

The department plans to destroy the seized pigeons.
