Police in the southern province of Tay Ninh Thursday said that they had arrested ten people, including one Chinese, for allegedly trafficking women to China, where they were sold to Chinese men as wives.

According to police, they busted the ring on July 6 when they caught Vong Kam Sang, 62, Pham Thi Nhung, 46, and Lin Liang Hui a 43-year-old Chinese man completing check-in procedures for three Vietnamese women and three Chinese men to fly to Hanoi.

The group planned to go to China by road from Hanoi.

Later police seized seven other suspected members in the ring.

Initial police reports said that the Vietnamese suspects were in charge of "recruiting" women for Lin, who would bring Chinese men here to meet them.
