Viet blogger vanishes abroad


WASHINGTON: A Vietnamese blogger for Radio Free Asia has vanished after fleeing to Thailand, the news organisation said, as rights activists voiced fear that he had been abducted.

Truong Duy Nhat – a weekly blogger for the Vietnamese service of Radio Free Asia aiming to provide news to countries that lack press freedom – last made contact with editors on Jan 26, a day after he applied for refugee status with the UN High Commis­sioner for Refugees in Bangkok, the US-funded network said.
