Border guards in the northern mountainous province of Ha Giang on November 5 successfully rescued a Mong ethnic woman who was abducted in China last month.

The victim was Mua Thi Cha, 33, from Lung Cu commune, Dong Van district. On October 19, Cha and Sung Thi Vu, 23 and from the same village, went shopping in Malin market in the Chinese province of Yunnan when they were forced into a car, said Nguyen Hai Ly, head of the Lung Cu Border Guards.

Taking advantage of the kidnappers’ negligence, Vu on October 23 made a phone call to her family who later notified Lung Cu border guards.

Two days later, Vu was rescued by Lung Cu border guards who had earlier asked for help from their Chinese counterparts and reunited with her family.

An investigation is underway.-VNA
