Update: June, 26/2013 - 10:18

DIEN BIEN (VNS)— Over 35,000 home-made shotguns and nearly 20 tonnes of explosives including bombs and bullets were handed to authorities in northern mountainous Dien Bien Province by residents.

The success comes after authorities first launched a campaign to persuade local residents to voluntarily give up their arms and explosive materials in 2005.

The campaign was in response to the Government's instruction on preventing illegal use of weapon and explosive materials. — VNS
