Sold in Shanghai: Myanmar bride rescued

A MYANMAR girl has been rescued in Shanghai after being smuggled to the city by a human trafficker and sold to marry a local man.

Police have sent the 17-year-old girl back home to Myanmar and caught the suspected trafficker surnamed Xie, reported today's Shanghai Oriental Morning Post.

Xie allegedly smuggled the girl to Shanghai last June after promising her a good job in China. When she arrived, he told her there were no jobs and forced her to marry a man surnamed Zhu, police told the newspaper.

Xie took 25,000 yuan (US$3,662) from Zhu, the report said.

The girl was since then locked in the man's home until the end of the year. When she managed to escape through a window, she contacted police.
