He said the Party, State and the Ministry of Public Security will pay attention to implementing policies for the sacrificed police officers.
He added that the President has signed a decision to award the first-class feat of arms order to the three police officers.
The disturbance erupted in the morning of January 9 in Dong Tam commune, where some units of the Ministry of National Defense and competent forces are building protective walls around Mieu Mon airport as planned.
According to the Ministry of Public Security, a number of rioters, armed with grenades, petrol bombs and other weapons, attacked those working at the construction site, the ministry said.
Three police officers and one rioter died during the incident, while another rioter was injured.
Relevant units arrested serious law violators for punishment in line with law.

According to Chief of the Office and Spokesperson of the Ministry of Public Security To An Xo, the present security situation and social order in Dong Tam commune, are basically stable, with local residents doing their daily activities normally.
