After a confrontation at a wedding ceremony, two cliques in southern Vietnam engaged in a violent knife fight at a location on National Expressway No. 91 in An Giang Province.
The knife fight took place on National Expressway No. 91 on Saturday, said Dinh Van Noi, director of An Giang’s Department of Public Security.
After receiving the information, local police mobilized relevant forces of Thoai Son District and Long Xuyen City to search for the suspects involved.
The brawl stemmed from the conflict between the clique of 31-year-old Bui Quoc Quan, who lives in Tan Uyen Town of Binh Duong Province, and another group which included 36-year-old Tran Minh Triet and 34-year-old Nguyen Hoang Tan, both residing in Nui Sap Town in An Giang Province.
On Saturday, Quan drove his friends in a 16-seater van to attend a wedding ceremony in Nui Sap Town, where the group was involved in a squabble with Tan and Triet’s clan.
They challenged each other to a face-off, which took place at around 3:05 pm the same day in Dong Son 2 Village of Nui Sap Town.
Machetes and guns were deployed in the fight.
The fight resulted in skull fractures for Triet while Tan was lacerated twice. Both were admitted to An Giang Province General Hospital.

Around 4:00 pm the same day, the group was ambushed by the feuding clan, which included nine people. After the brawl, Quan and his group fled to Binh Duong Province in their vehicle.
Catching up with the van on motorbikes, the nine blocked the road, smashed the vehicle’s windows and attacked Quan’s groups, causing six people in the automobile to be injured.
After arriving at a nearby clinic for wound treatment, multiple members of Quan’s group were arrested.
The case is being further investigated by An Giang police.
