ĐIỆN BIÊN — Police in the northern province of Điện Biên in collaboration with other forces have raided a drug trafficking ring involving three suspects and nearly 19kg of heroin.
Police on Tuesday night arrested a man who was trading the heroin in Tin Tốc Village, Mường Tùng Commune, Mường Chà District.
Expanding the case, the police then seized two other men, along with one car, one motorbike and six mobile phones.
