A woman has been detained in Vietnam's far northern town of Mong Cai Saturday and police said they will propose her be charge with human trafficking.

News website VnExpress reported that Hoang Thi An, 31, was arrested on January 2 based on information provided by family members of one of her female victims, who had been sold into sex slavery at a brothel in China.

The police received a report from the family a day earlier, which said their relative had been abducted while on a trip to China to purchase some goods in December and that An had purchased her from the abductors and then sold her to a restaurant to work as a prostitute.

They said they learned from an unnamed source on December 31 that An was about to return to Vietnam.

The arrest of An helped police to rescue two women including the one from the reporting family.

An said she bought the women in Guangdong province, one for US$2,100 and the another for $2,900.
