HA NOI (VNS) — Nearly 400 tourists, stranded on Cu Lao Cham Island in the central Quang Nam Province due to bad weather, were transported to the mainland yesterday, Cua Dai Border Post said.

Tran Van Ba, head of the border guards of the post, said strong winds and rough seas prevented the movement of boats transporting tourists from Cua Dai Beach to the island. Scores of tourists had been left stranded on the island since February 14.

Early yesterday, Cua Dai Border Post asked the provincial border guard command to send a military vessel and mobilise tens of soldiers to help the tourists return to the mainland.

All the tourists were transported safely by yesterday afternoon. — VNS
