Vietnam Targets Dissident Blogs

The government isn't quite ready to sign on to the whole concept of public criticism

Vietnam's prime minister has hit out at three blogs critical of the government, ordering that those behind them be "seriously punished".

A statement on a government website said PM Nguyen Tan Dung had ordered police to investigate and take action against those responsible.

He has also ordered civil servants not to read the blogs, which he said, had "agitated against… the state".
