Mongkok vice operation nets 24 suspects

Police and immigration officers arrested 16 women and eight men in Mongkok during a joint vice-operation. Two local residents, a man, 39, and a woman, 38, were arrested for managing a vice establishment. Police said 14 mainland women, a Thai woman and six Thai men were arrested for breach of condition of stay.
