Two men have been arrested for the murder of a gay man in Vietnam who was reportedly killed and chopped into pieces.

According to the country’s Tuổi Trẻ newspaper, 23-year-old Tran Tu Dien, of Bac Lieu province, and Ngo Van Tam, 20, of Tra Vinh province, were arrested by police in southern Dong Nai province yesterday (26 December).

The suspects worked together with the 26-year-old victim Bui Van Liem at an animal feed processing plant.

Tuổi Trẻ claims the suspects plotted to kill Liem over a money dispute on Christmas Day, using knives to cut his body into pieces before dumping them in bags in a nearby canal.

However, there has yet to be a trial to hear the evidence and the newspaper, which has ties with Hồ Chí Minh Communist Youth Union, does not reveal its sources.
