Vietnam urged to release bloggers

- +

The Vietnamese government should release three bloggers arrested over the last few weeks and stop physical attacks on critics, Human Rights Watch said Thursday. 

In the last month bloggers Truong Duy Nhat, Pham Viet Dao, and Dinh Nhat Uy were arrested on charges of "abusing democratic freedoms."

Other activists have been assaulted by police, the group said, including blogger Nguyen Hoang Vi, 26, who was allegedly beaten unconscious by police.
