Mountain raid nets 59 gamblers


More than 120 police raided a tent on Vong Mountain and arrested 59 people allegedly gambling on a dice game, confiscating 1 billion dong ($50,000). A police official said the alleged operator, Nguyen Van Tai, kept the betting going through daily midday and overnight sessions, with the help of power generators. The operators also provided credit but required gamblers to ante 500,000-1 million dong to play.
