Attack on a Vietnam monastery

Attack on a Vietnam monastery
A recent attack on a monastery practising a non-traditional brand of Buddhism is just one of a number of incidents that has raised concerns about curbs on religious freedom in Vietnam. The BBC's Krassimira Twigg looks at the events at Bat Nha monastery.

The Bat Nha monastery is at the centre of a complex dispute
On 29 June, a group of vigilantes tried to evict the monks and nuns living at the Bat Nha monastery in Vietnam's central highlands.
The attack left monks without food for two weeks and there is still no electricity or water at the monastery.
