10:02, May 18, 2013

IRKUTSK, Russia, May 17 (Xinhua) -- Police in Russia's southern Siberian republic of Khakassia have arrested four suspects in connection with the killing of three Chinese women, a Chinese diplomat said Friday.

The arrests were made early Friday in a village in the Krasnoyarsk region, said Guo Zhijun, consul general of the Chinese Consulate in Irkutsk.

He said that the three women, in their 40s and 50s, came legally from the northeastern Chinese provinces of Jilin and Heilongjiang to do farm work in Khakassia.

Local media reported that police found three charred bodies near a village in the republic late Wednesday soon after a Chinese woman reported that her three compatriots had disappeared.

A preliminary investigation indicated that the bodies were those of the missing women.
