Thousands of Myanmar women forced into marriage in China: Study

BANGKOK - Thousands of vulnerable women and girls from northern Myanmar are being trafficked to China and forced to marry, a study said on Friday (Dec 7), offering a rare look at an issue that grips the conflict-hit borderlands. China has around 33 million more men than women due to the decades-long one-child policy. To plug the gap, tens of thousands of poor women from Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam are sold as brides each year, some going willingly, while others are tricked or trafficked.
