UK truck deaths: Police look to Vietnamese community for help | DW News


British police have backed away from initial reports that 39 people found dead in a truck three days ago were from China. They’re now struggling to identify the victims. There are indications some of them may be from Vietnam. Investigators say Vietnamese communities in Britain and elsewhere are providing information that could help.

    Western politian always criticize Chinese government, no human right, not a free country. So what, it's just a joke

  23. yagle hoole says

    What disgusts me the most in this tragedy is that the Western media were blatantly disappointed that the victims had turned out to be non-Chinese. How evil.

  24. The Welsh Dragon. says

    Shame on Western medias. May these poor souls rest in peace.

  31. Gavin says

    several days ago, CNN reporter asked: why "Chinese citizens left China" in such a dangerous way when China had just celebrated PRC's 70th founding anniversary.

  33. Marie Lim says

  34. Louro Aloysius says

    if u see asian faces, call them Chinese?

  35. Be friend, My water says

    Don't blame the common people in the western countries, they have negative view of China only because they are brainwashed by their media with negative news of China and think China is still the old China 50 years ago.

  36. Be friend, My water says

    So far there are no Chinese families in China reported loss of contact with their relatives due to this accident. So I don't think any of them are Chinese.

  37. trấn tại says

    Vietnam best people in the world! All Vietnamese like UK, not Vietnam because UK life better more fun more benefits. If more easy visa to Vietnam so we don't go in trucks or boats. If driver not careful we die.

  38. Kiki T says

    The victims are Vietnamese not Chinese . Shame on BBC! Shame on CNN!

  39. Hound of Unknown says

    Some of them? Do you mean rest of them are Chinese or not? Speak it out clearly.

  40. 汪子盛 says

    Hypocritical and biased Western media and Anti China groups, when they first smell the taste of China, and then climax! Later, the truth came out, and they were silent, diluted, and even stopped updating their reports. At first, they stopped commenting on the climax video to avoid too many people knowing the truth.

  41. Franz Smith says

    Its like the Brexit, they do not know what they are doing. Yeah, but no, but yeah, but no, but yeah , but no.
    They say one and its not even close. Unprofessionalism big time.

  42. Sarah Hartley says

    What business do the Vietnamese have in trying to get to the UK? Their country is not at war, their economy is not in pieces, they are not short of food, water or medical care. What is it about the UK which makes people from any country in the world want to be here? Thank the Earth for the English channel. Otherwise this country would be ruined.

  43. Loken Zhang says

    I am wondering why people want to immigrant to UK?this country is nothing now
