Two Chinese at a Lang Son Province police office for alleged murder of a local child  
Police in the northern mountainous province Lang Son on February 28 arrested two Chinese men for alleged murder of a boy, suspected as warning for indebted parents.
Quach Dai Phat, 29, and Lieu Diep Quan, 27, as they are called in Vietnamese, came to the family in Trang Dinh District in the afternoon of February 26. The parents were not at home, so they slit the 10-year-old boy’s throat with a knife.
Police arrested them the day later from a nearby hideout.
Vu Hong Quang, deputy chief police officer of Lang Son, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper the suspects said the cause of the murder was the fact that the boy refused to give them food as they were lost to Vietnam and that they were hungry.
But police investigation found that the Chinese had offered shark loans to the parents. They lived deep in mainland China and had traveled across the border many times to claim the money to no avail. The murder thus could be a warning.
Police are investigating further.
