In August 1993 a Vietnamese killed seven relatives of his wife, and wounded five others by detonating a hand grenade during a family meeting in Thanh Hóa Province, Vietnam. The young man, who was apparently enraged, because they had tried to intervene in a dispute with his wife without his consent, afterwards escaped.[1][2][3]
