Vietnam Premier Seeks Answers After New Clashes in Northern City

Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has asked government agencies for an explanation of a new incident this month in the northern city of Haiphong where protests took place last year.

Clashes occurred on April 21 at the construction site for a planned shoe factory in the Tien Lang district of Haiphong, according to a posting on the national government’s website. About 100 villagers were involved, along with security guards and others, according to a summary on the website of the city government of Haiphong, a port city about 60 miles (97 kilometers) east of the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi.

Vietnamese authorities this month sentenced a former local official in Tien Lang to jail for destroying property over a land dispute. That incident involved a planned eviction after a lease on aquatic farmland expired, according to a report this month by Vietnam News Agency.

Land-related matters dominate complaints to Vietnam’s government, and people that lose land are increasingly staging public protests, the World Bank said in a report last year.
