HA GIANG (VNS) — Fifty four people, mostly young women and children, were brought back to Viet Nam yesterday after being sold into slavery in China.

The victims, mostly from ethnic minority groups, returned through the Thanh Thuy International Border Gate in northern Ha Giang Province. They had been told to work as prostitutes and labourers.

Their rescue was due to an anti-human trafficking co-operation campaign by border authorities in both countries.

Ha Giang Province authorities arranged accommodation for the group before they return to their families. — VNS
