A reporter takes pictures beside a red warning poster reading "Dioxin-contominated area. Livestock and poultry raising and fishing are probihited", at the Ho Sen or Lotus Lake located next to Danang airport, a former US airbase, where a ground-breaking ceremony of the joint US-Vietnam Dioxin Cleanning Project is held on August 9, 2012.
