Vietnam Set to Explode - Dissident Detained After Call For Revolution

Borrowed from The Associated Press - Thank you

A state-run newspaper is reporting that one of Vietnam's most prominent pro-democracy dissidents has been detained after calling for a revolution to overthrow the Communist government.
Dr. Nguyen Dan Que posted an appeal on the Internet last week calling for the masses to launch an uprising to make a "clean sweep of Communist dictatorship and build a new, free, democratic, humane and progressive Vietnam."
Tuoi Tre newspaper reported Monday that Que was being held by police in Ho Chi Minh City for allegedly acting to overthrow the government. It said he was caught possessing and distributing documents Saturday calling for a revolution.
Police declined to comment Monday.
