Motorcyclists wait for a green light next to a communist propaganda poster in downtown Hanoi on February 27, 2013. A Vietnamese journalist has been fired from his state-run newspaper after criticising the head of the ruling Communist Party in a personal blog. Nguyen Dac Kien was sacked from the Family and Society newspaper less than 24 hours after he published an essay on his blog -- which quickly went viral -- criticising a speech by the party's general secretary Nguyen Phu Trong.
