Dear friends,

I have been made aware of the following this morning:

"Police currently in front of Tu Duc temple Yesterday at 7pm (Vietnam time), the police from Khanh Hoa ordered 19 young nuns and 1 young monk to leave Tu Duc temple. Since the violent expulsion from Bat Nha monastery, those monk and nuns had taken refuge in Tu Duc temple, under the protection of Ven. Giac Viên.
Right now..., some plain-clothed policemen and some in uniform are in front of the gate of Tu Duc temple.
We will keep you informed of the situation as soon as we have more information."
