Vietnam villagers hold dozens of policemen in land dispute
Excerpt: HANOI, Vietnam — Villagers in Vietnam’s capital on Monday were holding more than 30 people, most of them policemen, over a land dispute in a rare defiance of the communist government. The standoff began over the weekend in My Duc, a district of Hanoi, when police clashed with villagers who allege their land was illegally seized for sale by a military-run telecommunications firm. Some villagers were arrested. (We can only pray they don't send in cops with weapons, and that in the end, the villagers' legitimate complaints are dealt with fairly for once. It'd be a great start. --Del)
