    it has to do with religious discrimination or ethnic discrimination.

    That’s what I think too. If it’s either one of those then I don’t think the Viet government is gonna do anything about it.

    How terrible! The poor families losing their boys! Money from the government won’t take away the pain of their loss. If this is ruled as homicide, I hope that whoever did this to them will have karma biting them in the rear soon enough!
