A criminal gang from southern Vietnam has been nabbed after fatally attacking a 25-year-old man, then storming the hospital to pounce on the victim and his friends.

The incident transpired on Thursday night, police in Dong Thap Province confirmed on Friday. 

According to a preliminary inspection, L., 25, was on a motorbike driven by his friend when a young man attacked him with a sharp weapon from behind.
