Human Trafficking Remains in Spotlight, as Case of Caged Woman Circulates Online
Authorities in Northwest China’s Shaanxi province are probing a case of a woman allegedly kept in an iron cage by her husband, as a string of similar cases has kept attention on the country’s long-standing issue with human trafficking.
Police in the city of Yulin said in a Tuesday statement that an investigation team was looking into allegations circulating online about the woman’s situation. A viral article on Chinese social media alleged that the woman had been mentally and physically abused by her husband, surnamed Li, speculating that she could be Wang Guohong who went missing from Datong county in Qinghai province in 2009.
