I have just read so many articles written about this sad story.

Vu Anh Tuan was a brilliant student. He's at my age and studied at the same high school as mine, 1 year lower. After entering Thuy Loi University, he won a governmental scholarship to study in Russia. 1 week ago he died, not by a car crash, not by falling down from 13th floor, not by drowning ... HE WAS KILLED! By a group of bald blokes (which can be some kind of new fascism). The reason is considered to be racial discrimination. What's the hell is going on??? A 20-year-old boy was killed because of nothing. Some eye-witnesses told that they saw him lying there in blood, with many knife stabs on his back.

His family now, has received much sharing from all Vietnamese, but who can bring Tuan back? Right one day after Tuan arrived in Russia, his father died, now his mother is very desperate. His only elder sister is pregnant and her husband has gone to St Peterbua to manage things and bring his body back. Everything is too terrible!

I don't know what I should say now. Hope Tuan will rest in Peace, hope his family and his girlfriend Ninh can stand by in this horrible disaster, hope there will be noone die in vain, hope the ones who are not human but wearing a human manner all disappear on Earth, hope ...

If you can read Vietnamese, visit http://www.vnexpress.net/Topic/?ID=2872 for articles. I will translate some into English. Be back tomorrow.

:cry: How sad! I've heard that the relationship between Vietnamese people in Russia and Russian government is not good, is it? There are goods and bads that have happened between them. I'm not quite sure this information is correct but my point is maybe this is the reason why they didn't help him. Just a guess!

I don't think so. In my opinion, it is simply that Russia is having a big problem with their national security.

I am really touching when knowing this news.Students here-in Hanoi are seriously shocked.Tuan Anh's death is a great loss of our country.He was a brilliant pupil since he studied at Kim Lien school.I have some friends who are studying now in Russia and their falimies are so anxious.This sad event awfully breaks their credit of studying abroad. :(

:( I really don't know what to say I feel soo sad .Why any one would do such a thing why! May his soul rest in peace and I pray from my heart that who ever did it be punished for it.
