Hanoi - Six members of a wealthy family in southern Vietnam were found knifed to death in their home early Tuesday after an apparent break-in, news reports said.

Victims included the 47-year-old husband, his wife and two of their children, including a 10-year-old boy. A niece and a nephew of the couple were also killed. Their 2-year-old daughter was not harmed.
