*Earlier on August 30 in Dien Bien Province, two traffickers were arrested for carrying 20,000 meth pills by border guard and anti-drug police forces.

While patroling in Hin 2 village, Na Sang commune, Muong Cha district around 8:20 pm, the inter-sectoral task force spotted two suspects driving two motorbikes on National Highway No. 12 towards Muong Lay township. 

The task force requested them to stop for checking but they sped up in an attempt to escape. The two men were ultimately put under control and found to carry 20,000 meth tablets wrapped in three separate packages with yellow tapes.

They are Giang A Chinh and Ly A Lu, both 30, residing in Ket Tinh village, Muong Muon commune, Muong Cha district.

They confessed to have bought the drugs from a Lao national across the border and be on the way to Lai Chau to distribute the drugs.

The cases are under further investigations.
