QUANG BINH (VNS) — Border guards in central Quang Binh Province apprehended a local man attempting to smuggle 50kg of gunpowder into the country on Saturday.
The guards in the province's Cha Lo Border Gate stopped three men travelling by motorbikes from the Lao border and found them in possession of gunpowder.
While two of the suspects escaped, Dinh Van Ben, who was captured by the guards, admitted that he and the other villagers had purchased the gunpowder to sell it in their locality.
Ben is a resident of Minh Hoa District, where the border gate is based. — VNS
