Hanoi: Four Vietnamese soldiers were killed
and nine others wounded in an explosion during a training
exercise, a local official said today.

The incident took place yesterday at the Chi Lang firing
range in Tinh Bien, a district in the southern province of An
Giang, the Ho Chi Minh City Law newspaper reported, without
giving details on the cause.

The head of Tinh Bien`s local government, Nguyen Van Con,
confirmed the report but declined to give further
details. He said the case is under investigation.

Communist Vietnam is seeking to modernise its military
hardware, much of which is antiquated.
