Vietnamese police have recently detained a local couple who have trafficked 20 young women to China's Macao to work as prostitutes, local newspaper People's Army reported Friday.

Since 2003, the 36-year-old woman named Nguyen Tuyet Chinh from Hanoi capital and her 42-year-old husband, Nguyen Thanh Son, have cheated 20 local girls from several northern localities of going to Macao to get well-paid jobs. For each girl, they received, on average, 17,500 U.S. dollars from brothels in Macao.

The police have identified four underlings of Chinh and Son, including two Vietnamese people and two persons from China's Hong Kong. They are further probing into the case.
