Seven held over missing Viet group in Taiwan


Taipei: Seven suspected members of a human trafficking ring have been arrested in Taiwan over the disappearance of a group of 152 Vietnamese who came to the island to work illegally, authorities said.

Taiwan authorities have been searching for the missing Vietnamese since last month after they landed on tourist visas under an initiative to attract more visitors from South and South-East Asia at a time when arrivals from mainland China have declined.
