BEIJING (AP) — State media say police in southern China have rescued 11 Vietnamese women who were abducted and forced into prostitution in a border province and are returning them home.

State-run China News Service said Saturday that police in Guangxi province investigated the case in response to a request by Vietnamese police and located the women in Nanning city.

It says the victims were confined to a spa in the city and forced to engage in prostitution, but one woman managed to notify her family in Vietnam.

China News says police arrested one suspect.

Despite repeated police crackdowns, there remains a thriving market for foreign prostitutes in China, especially in border provinces and big cities.
