HA NOI (VNS) — Police in Ha Noi's Hoang Mai District yesterday found nearly one tonne of smuggled flare, a type of pyrotechnic that produces a brilliant light or intense heat without explosion.
Police found the flare when examining a truck that parked around Giap Bat Station. The truck driver failed to show any document proving the origin of the flare and he reported to the police that he was hired by unknown man to transport it from Gia Lam District to the station.
According to the police, the flare could pose high risk to fire if stored in improper conditions and cause burns to children users. — VNS
