Berlin says two Germans killed in Vietnam blast
Two Germans were among four people killed in a fireworks explosion in the Vietnamese capital Hanoi, the foreign ministry in Berlin said on Thursday.
The two men, who were not named, were in their 50s and belonged to a group of 15 Germans working for a Singaporean company, a spokesman said. A third German was injured.
The explosion occurred during preparations for Hanoi's millennium celebrations when two containers holding fireworks caught fire. The Vietnamese government said four people, including three foreigners, were killed.
