Funeral in Vietnam for 2 UK truck death victims

1 min read

(28 Nov 2019) The village of Dien Thinh bid farewell to two of its sons, victims of a human trafficking tragedy unveiled last month when the bodies of 39 Vietnamese were discovered in a truck in England.
This village church did double duty Thursday as coffins with the bodies of cousins Nguyen Van Hung and Hoang Van Tiep were carried in for a funeral attended by about 300 people.
The remains of 16 of the 39 people found October 23, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of London in the town of Grays, were repatriated to Vietnam on Wednesday and sent on to their families.
The 31 men and eight women are believed to have paid human traffickers for their clandestine transit into England.
Police say the victims were aged between 15 and 44.
