Vietnam Riots: 1 Dead, 90 Wounded


The Taiwanese ambassador to Vietnam said that demonstrators broke into a large factory and killed at least one Chinese worker and wounded over 90 people. Another source, a medical professional who spoke to the Reuters news agency, said that five Vietnamese workers and 16 Chinese workers were killed.

Tension towards the Chinese living in Vietnam has been on the rise as of late, since Beijing stationed an oil refinery in the South China Sea, a location under territorial dispute, earlier this month (May).
