THỪA THIÊN - HUẾ — Traffic police in central Thừa Thiên-Huế Province this morning stopped a passenger bus travelling on National Highway 1A and found two big boxes containing internal organs of cows on board.

Policemen said the cow viscera looked stale and produced a foul odour.

The bus departed from Đà Nẵng City and was heading to Laos’s Vientiane. Bus driver Nguyễn Hữu Hiệp told the police he was hired to carry those boxes. He, however, failed to show documents of the boxes’ origin and hygiene condition.

Police seized the boxes and transferred them to the local environmental police unit for investigation. Vietnamese use cattle viscera as an ingredient in a number of dishes. There are many Vietnamese who live as temporary workers in Lao provinces near the border. — VNS
