A Russian tourist allegedly cut his friend's throat with a broken bottle during a quarrel they had on Nha Trang beach early Thursday morning, Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reported.

Some Russian tourists who witnessed the fight said they met the two men, identified only as Alexander and Evgeni, at the Sailing Club bar Wednesday evening and accompanied them to a beach nearby to continue drinking.

At around 2 a.m. Alexander and Evgeni began to fight over some previous incident when the former slashed his friend in the neck with a broken bottle, rupturing the carted artery.

Some of the tourists tried to separate them, and ended up with slight injuries.

Evgeni was rushed to the Khanh Hoa General Hospital while Alexander checked out of the hotel room they had rented and left.

Nha Trang is a popular destination for Russian tourists, with lots of signboards in Russian and tour guides, drivers, and local residents speaking the language.
