Vietnamese soldier dismissed over tortured monkeys

State media say a soldier has been dismissed from the military after photos of him torturing two monkeys posted on Facebook outraged the public.



Hanoi: State media in Vietnam say a soldier has been dismissed from the military after photos of him torturing two monkeys posted on Facebook outraged the public.

The Labourer newspaper says 20-year-old private Nguyen Van
Quang was dismissed from his unit in central Gia Lai province and two other soldiers were given a warning.

The three bought the monkeys from villagers for USD 57 before torturing them and hiring villagers to slaughter them. A photo shows a monkey having a cigarette pressed into its mouth.

Many readers expressed anger in comments in print and online newspapers after the images were posted on Quang`s Facebook wall last month.

The newspaper said today that the military has arrested a villager and issued warrants against two others for illegal hunting.

Quang`s army unit didn`t comment.
