Police in Vietnam have burned almost eight tons of seized marijuana, the largest haul of its kind ever in the country, an officer said on Wednesday (November 3).

"That marijuana was burned early Tuesday morning in Nam Khe Commune, in the presence of several police and judicial officials," said a counter-narcotics officer in the northeastern Quang Ninh Province bordering China.

Officers used wood and petrol to burn the drugs, he said.

The official Party newspaper Nhan Dan said 7.9 tons of the drugs were seized in 2008 from five Chinese who were sentenced to death.
