BEIJING - Police from China and Angola have jointly busted a criminal gang that abducted Chinese women and forced them into prostitution in Angola, China's Ministry of Public Security said on Wednesday.

Police rescued 19 Chinese women during a crackdown on Oct 25, in which 11 suspects were arrested in Angola and five were caught in China, according to a statement on the ministry's website. All suspects are Chinese citizens.

The female victims were sent back to China on Nov 4 and the 11 suspects on Nov 13, said the statement.

The case came into focus last April, when a woman surnamed Zhang informed Tonghua police authority in Northeast China's Jilin province that her sister and some other Chinese young women had been abducted to Angola, and forced to provide sexual service.

Zhang told the police that on April 16 her sister was hired to work as an attendant in a hotel in Angola on a salary of 6,000 yuan ($945) per month.
