Border police in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region have detained more than 2,600 Vietnamese who attempted to enter China illegally in the fist half of the year, police sources said Tuesday.

A total of 2,606 suspects were intercepted in the first six months, representing a surge of 32.6 percent from the same period last year, sources said.

Most of the illegal immigrants were aged between 16 and 45.

Most of those entering China illegally came to look for work, according to the police.

About 46 percent immediately headed to China's coastal areas to find employment as cheap laborers, the police said.

The majority of those who entered the country illegally by crossing the Chinese-Vietnamese border appear to have planned to work during the sugar cane harvest in Guangxi, which accounts for about 60 percent of the country's sugar output, the police said.
