​Vietnamese woman fatally stabs self after quarrel at embassy in Malaysia

​Vietnamese woman fatally stabs self after quarrel at embassy in Malaysia

Tuesday, April 03, 2018, 10:01 GMT+7

A Vietnamese woman stabbed herself to death right after apparently having a row with the staff at her country’s embassy in Malaysia on Monday.

The woman, Tran Thi Mai, and a male companion went to the Vietnamese Embassy in Kuala Lumpur to complete some travel paperwork before the dispute began, a source with knowledge of the matter told a Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporter in Malaysia on Tuesday.

The 37-year-old Vietnamese then raised her voice and started quarreling with the embassy staff at the reception area at around 11:30 am on Monday, according to the source.

Mai eventually appeared to lose control of herself when she shouted more aggressively and took out a knife, giving herself multiple stabs.

“She yelled and cursed at the embassy employees before repeatedly stabbing herself in the chest,” the source told Tuoi Tre.

The man who accompanied Mai to the embassy immediately took her to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital, but she succumbed to her severe injuries.

The Vietnamese embassy has notified Malaysian police of the incident.

Police officers have been dispatched to the scene for investigation.
