Society

-- Three out of four people washed away by strong waves while swimming at a beach in the north-central province of Thanh Hoa on Wednesday were rescued after half an hour of strenuous effort, while the other has remained missing.

-- A husband in Hanoi was stunned to know that the son he has brought up over the past six years is from a woman bearing a baby at the same time and hospital as his wife.

-- A 25-year-old man in Hanoi was sentenced to three years in prison on Wednesday for having sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girlfriend who he knew via Facebook. The man said they had sex several times with consent from the girl, who eloped with him to live in Ho Chi Minh City after two months of romance.

-- Fish in multiple farming cages along a river in the northern province of Phu Tho, near Hanoi, have died to the farmers’ shock since late Tuesday, after a local hydroelectric dam discharged water.

- A woman in the south-central province of Binh Dinh died on Tuesday after eating a strange sea snail, which left her vomiting, breathing with difficulty, and numb limbs and a stiff mouth.

Business

-- Around 80 percent of Vietnamese firms export their products to markets outside the Asia-Pacific region, especially to the U.S., India and Germany, according to a report by Tennessee-based international shipping company FedEx Express, which means Vietnamese exportation may be vulnerable to the U.S.-China trade war.

-- A revetment project to prevent erosion at a major river in Khanh Hoa Province is expected to be restarted in April next year after having been suspended due to insufficient funding for 15 years, during which households affected by the project lived in a difficult situation, and local land management and erosion control were impeded.
