Spanish police bust Chinese illegal immigration ring

Spanish and French police have together arrested 75 members of a gang suspected of smuggling Chinese citizens into Europe and the United States, Spain's interior ministry announced on Saturday.

Of the total, 51 were arrested in Spain - including two believed to be the heads of the Barcelona-based people smuggling organisation in Europe - and the other 24 in France.

The gang is accused of offering false passports for between 40,000 and 50,000. Some of the immigrants ended up in the sex trade, the ministry said.
