Vietnamese beef up security

This is to avoid a repeat of the violent clashes that marred Sunday's first-leg in Malaysia after Vietnam came from a goal down to win 2-1.

"Even though the number of Malaysia fans is not too many, they will get seats in designated areas," Can Van Nghia, the director of the national stadium, told Thanh Nien Online.

"Malaysian fans will be very safe at My Dinh Stadium," he added.

The Malaysian sports minister Khairy Jamaluddin issued an apology to Vietnam's supporters and spoke with Vietnam's ambassador to Malaysia about security measures for the return leg.
