Police in central Vietnam said Tuesday they have rescued a woman who was trafficked and forced into prostitution in China thanks to photos she posted on Facebook.
On June 27 Nghe An police raided a private house in the Chinese province of Yunnan, bordering the northern Vietnamese province of Lao Cai, rescuing the 23-year old woman, local media reported.
The woman, whose name was only revealed as N, had disappeared from her home in Nghe An since June 23.
A relative of hers saw some photos posted on her Facebook two days later.
Based on the location displayed on Facebook, police found her and brought her home safely.
Police later arrested her neighbor Nguyen Thi Nhat for running the trafficking ring.
Nhat, 19, reportedly visited the victim’s house on June 22, bringing a Chinese man with her.
Nhat said that the man wanted to hire N to work at a barbershop in Hanoi.
However, N’s family rejected the suspicious offer.
Nhat lured N out of her house a day later, kidnapped her and carried her to China.
Police said they are looking for the other accomplices.
