Vietnamese officials signaled that further violence over a dispute with China would not be tolerated, declaring that more than 300 people involved in last week’s attacks on foreign-owned businesses would be prosecuted.

General Hoang Cong Tu, head of investigations at the ministry of public security said they have seriously undermined the country’s image, and such action has to be punished.

In the first official accounting of the damage, he told reporters here in the capital that two Chinese workers had died and 140 were injured.

China has evacuated more than 3,000 Chinese nationals from Vietnam.
