Over 3,000 Chinese Flee Vietnam Due to Violence


Over 3,000 Chinese citizens living in Vietnam fled to their birthplace, due to the fatal riots which took to the streets as a response to Chinese oil drilling in disputed South China Sea waters, state news agency Xinhua said this morning (Sunday).

The evacuation followed days of violent and deadly fighting between Vietnamese rioters and Chinese workers. Thousands massed as raging rioters turned against Chinese workers and Chinese-owned businesses, causing endless damage and many casualties.
