A woman from Ben Tre Province in the Mekong Delta has been sentenced to four and a half years for kidnapping a six-year-old boy and trying to "sell" him.

Le Thi Sanh Em, 47, was arrested in June in neighboring Long An Province  after people became suspicious at seeing her with the boy and reported to the police, news website Dan Tri said.

Em had lured Tran Van Thu, 6, to go with her after finding him playing alone. She tried to sell the boy for VND10 million (US$480).
