Chinese police have rescued 11 female Vietnamese victims of human trafficking who were forced into prostitution this April, the Shanghai Daily reported Monday.
The women were rescued during a raid of a "beauty parlor" in southwest China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on June 12.
Two of the women and the ringleader, a Vietnamese woman surnamed Vi, were sent back to Vietnam Friday last week, while nine other women area awaiting repatriation.
Chinese police made the raid after assistance request from Vietnamese police in Mong Cai at the China border on May 29. The Vietnamese authorities were tipped off by one of the women, surnamed Nguyen.
Although Vi kept a close watch over the women, Nguyen, a relative of a police official, managed to call her family secretly on May 29.
The report said the market for foreign prostitutes in China is "thriving," despite crackdowns.
