Five Vietnamese women, including one aged just 15, were arrested in Malaysia Tuesday for alleged prostitution.

The police arrested eight women, the others being two Indonesians and a Thai, during a raid on a bar in Selangor state.

Seven of them are aged between 19 and 25, including four of the Vietnamese, Malaysian newspaper The Sun Daily reported.

"The club offers the services of prostitutes at RM150 (US$47), inclusive of a room on the upper floor of the bar," Rohan Shah Ahmad, vice chief of the Gaming and Secret Societies division, told the newspaper.

"Customers are given a discount if they order alcohol," he said.

Ahmad said the police have classified the 15-year-old's case under the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act, and the rest under the Immigration Act.

They have also arrested a man believed to be the pimp and five other people.

Earlier, on June 3 the Selangor police busted another prostitution ring involving nine Vietnamese women and a Chinese aged between 19 and 34 at a factory.
