LAI CHAU (VNS)— About 480 head of cattle, including buffaloes, cows, horses and goats, have died since mid-December last year because of the severe cold spell that hit northern Lai Chau Province.

According to the provincial Agriculture Department, over 300 cattle died in the two border districts of Sin Ho and Phong Tho alone.
