Police in Hanoi on Thursday detained a suspect for damaging 40 graves at a cemetery in Tay Mo Ward, Nam Tu Liem District, sparking public concern, a local police officer told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Friday.

The suspect, born in 2008, shows signs of a minor mental illness.

The police are further investigating the case.
