Part of a smuggling ring ?: Mortuary in trucks near London: Eight arrests in Vietnam


TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates

Hanoi (AP) - After finding 39 bodies in a truck near London, the Vietnamese police arrested eight suspects in Nghe An Province.

According to the authorities, they should be part of a smuggling ring that illegally brings Vietnamese to Britain, as state media reported on Monday. Already last week, two people were arrested in connection with the case in Ha Tinh province.

In both provinces, according to media reports, 28 families reported missing relatives. The authorities in Vietnam have taken blood samples from family members of some missing persons to match their DNA with that of the dead.

At the behest of Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, a Vice Foreign Minister traveled to Britain with a delegation on Sunday. There, the unnamed government official should support the investigations into the incident and help with the identification of the bodies.

The Vietnamese foreign ministry described Saturday's incident as a "serious human tragedy" after the British police announced that all victims are believed to be Vietnamese.

The bodies of the 31 men and 8 women were discovered on October 23 in a refrigerated truck. British police investigate manslaughter in 39 cases and human trafficking.
