    11 Vietnamese Women Rescued from Chinese Human Trafficking Ring

    Authorities in Yunnan province have arrested 23 people involved in a cross-border human trafficking operation, according to China Daily, and freed 11 captive Vietnamese women. The Chinese citizens arrested in the bust all hail from Yunnan and Henan provinces.  

    The case dates back to February of last year, when police at a Yunnan train station discovered a woman who’d purchased a train ticket using someone else’s ID card. She refused to talk and a man traveling with her attempted to stop police from questioning her, according to China Daily.

    It was eventually discovered that the woman was purchased by the man, an Anhui resident surnamed Ren, and was from Vietnam. She was sold to Ren by two men in Yunnan province.

    While unraveling that case, police discovered a cross-border human trafficking operation that was responsible for abducting Vietnamese women and smuggling them into China. So far, the investigation has led to 23 arrests in Yunnan and Henan, and authorities are continuing their investigation.
