Vietnam detains two cyber-dissidents

Vietnamese authorities arrested two cyber-dissidents Sept. 21, for distributing pamphlets and posting political documents online, according to Reporters Without Borders. The two are Le Nguyen Sang (pen name Nguyen Hoang Long), a 48-year-old doctor; and Huyen Nguyen Dao (pen name Huynh Viet Lang), a 38-year-old journalist. They are presently detained in Ho Chi Minh City.
