Lao authorities have put in place a new rule that requires the re-registration of firearms—including those owned by police officers, soldiers and village security officials—in an effort to eradicate illegal firearm possession, an Internal Security Ministry official said.

"All guns will be re-inspected, [including] guns already dispensed internally and guns belonging to society at large," the official, who is based in the capital Vientiane, but declined to be named, told RFA's Lao Service.

"Wherever the guns are—in villages, in organizations—all these will be re-inspected and have to be registered again."
