Illegal marriage brokerage raided in Vietnam

Police in Vietnam say they have raided an illegal marriage brokerage in Ho Chi Minh City, in the latest in a series of such actions.

They say 11 South Korean men were caught selecting potential brides from among 112 young women from the Mekong delta region.

Four Vietnamese marriage brokers are said to have been taken in for questioning.

Local media reports say the women had been taught Korean and cooking before being paraded before the Korean men, who had to pay up to $US10,000 if the introductions led to marriage.
