Sex video featuring monk sparks outrage in Vietnam

10 December 2014, 12:02

Hanoi - A video allegedly showing a monk having sex sparked outrage on social media in Vietnam on Wednesday.

The seven-and-a-half-minute edited video appears to show images of a monk from a pagoda in Nha Trang City in Khanh Hoa province in southern Vietnam having sex with a woman.

The images attracted widespread attention on social media, with many commentators expressing shock.

Local government-run newspaper Khanh Hoa condemned the man's actions.

Authorities have not been able to contact the monk in question, the deputy chief of the Khanh Hoa Board of Trustees Buddhist Sangha, Thich Nguyen Quang, told dpa.

"At the moment, we cannot verify the [identity of the man in the] video clip," he said. "We have tried to call him many times, but he did not answer."

Quang said he was disappointed that the provincial newspaper ran the clip. "I feel someone is trying to damage us," he said.

He said the board would discuss the case later on Wednesday.
