Five Vietnamese, 16 others described as Chinese dead in Vietnam rioting - doctor

HANOI (Reuters) - Five Vietnamese workers and 16 other people described as Chinese died during anti-China rioting in the central Vietnamese province of Ha Tinh on Wednesday night, a doctor at a hospital in the province said.

"There were about a hundred people sent to the hospital last night. Many were Chinese. More are being sent to the hospital this morning," the doctor at Ha Tinh General Hospital told Reuters by phone on Thursday.

Earlier on Wednesday, rioters had attacked premises on industrial parks in the south of the country but no deaths were reported.
