font size    

Vietnam's sea police have detained four armed pirates of Cambodian nationality when they were escorting four Vietnamese fishing ships toward Cambodia, local media reported Friday.

The four men aged between 32 and 39 were arrested by the sea police in Vietnam's southern Kien Giang province on Thursday noon when they, using guns, were forcing the Vietnamese ships to run toward Cambodia, said Young People newspaper.

Three AK assault rifles, one K-59 pistol and 85 bullets were confiscated, according to the Kien Giang Border Guard.

The four men from a group of pirates, using a high-speed ship, climbed onto the four Vietnamese ships while they were fishing near the province's Phu Quoc Island. When seeing the local police, other pirates in the high-speed ship sped up and fled.
