The National - News - - WORLD | NEWS -

Viet­nam is try­ing to dis­cover if any of its ci­ti­zens were among the bod­ies dis­cov­ered in the back of a lorry near Lon­don last week. Viet­nam’s Deputy For­eign Min­is­ter Nguyen Quoc Cuong said yes­ter­day that his gov­ern­ment was work­ing with the UK to speed up the iden­ti­fi­ca­tion process but that he did not know when the work would be com­pleted. On Mon­day, Bri­tish po­lice sent doc­u­ments re­gard­ing four of the bod­ies found in the lorry to Hanoi for fur­ther ver­i­fi­ca­tion. On the same day, a UK court heard that a global traf­fick­ing ring was in­volved in smug­gling the group. The lorry’s driver, Mau­rice Robin­son, 25, has been charged with man­slaugh­ter and peo­ple traf­fick­ing.
