(AFP) – Vietnam denied claims by a US-based advocacy group that it forced ethnic minority villagers to stage a re-enactment of Easter anti-government protests so they could film acts of violence. Citing sources in Vietnam ‘s troubled Central Highlands , the Montagnard Foundation said residents of the Buon Tul village in Dak Lak province’s Buon Don district were forced to take part in the documentary on July 7. The South Carolina-based organization claimed that soldiers and police threatened to kill anyone who refused. The government has used the film to show diplomats and foreign journalists that the minority people, who are known as Montagnards, acted violently during widespread protests in the region over the Easter weekend of April 10-11.
