Flooded Vietnam Releases Reservoir Water as APEC Meeting Approaches


Vietnam has released water from seven dangerously full reservoirs just days before a summit of Asia-Pacific leaders and after a typhoon killed nearly 70 people. The Steering Committee for Disaster Prevention says authorities are trying to avoid further flooding, particularly around the city of Danang, where the meeting of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) leaders is being held.
