Kidnapped infant rescued at border

QUANG NINH (VNS)— Northeastern Quang Ninh Province's police yesterday rescued a nine-month-old boy as his alleged kidnapper was attempting to cross the border into China.

Le Thi Mo, born in 1981 and originally from the central province of Thanh Hoa, admitted that she intended to sell the baby to a relative currently residing in China. She has been placed under arrest pending further investigations.

Mo kidnapped the child from his home in Trang Bom District in the southern province of Dong Nai on Tuesday.

The boy's disappearance was reported to local police who then asked Quang Ninh police to intercept Mo near the border.

The child is being cared for by police before he is reunited with his family.-VNS
