A married couple were arrested for human trafficking in central Vietnam after one of their victims came back from China and tipped police off.

Ly Xue Leng, a 45-year-old Chinese, and his Vietnamese wife Nong Thi Be, 29, were caught upon arrival at Da Nang bus station.

Be had been working as her husband’s interpreter and local guide as they persuaded young women from the north-central province of Nghe An to work as housekeepers abroad for between VND5-6 million (US$237-284) a month.

But the women were then sold to brothels in China.

They sold two ethnic girls from Quang Nam Province, which neighbors Da Nang, in May.
