[ti:After British Truck Deaths, Vietnamese Families Wait for News] [by:www.otzgay.live] [00:00.00]更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM [00:00.04]British officials have accused a 25-year-old man of causing the deaths of [00:06.11]39 people found in a truck near London last week. [00:11.05]The British man also was charged with taking part in an international human trafficking group. [00:20.24]British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wrote a note of support for the victims, [00:26.02]saying: "The whole nation and indeed the world has been shocked by this tragedy, [00:32.09]and the cruelty of the fate that has been suffered by innocent people [00:37.74]who were hoping for a better life in this country." [00:42.84]In Vietnam, VNExpress reported that 24 families [00:48.47]from Ha Tinh and Nghe An provinces in north-central Vietnam [00:54.84]do not yet know whether their children are among the dead. [00:59.45]Some of the family members have sent pictures of the missing people [01:04.06]to relatives and friends in Britain to ask for help. [01:09.60]Pham Van Thin's 26-year-old daughter, Pham Thi Tra My, [01:15.19]is likely among the 39 people who died in the truck. [01:21.12]Pham said his daughter had sent her mother a text message saying, [01:25.53]"I'm sorry Mum. My journey abroad hasn't succeeded. Mum, I love you so much! [01:32.42]I'm dying because I can't breathe ... I am sorry, Mum." [01:38.00]Bui Thac's nephew is among those feared to be dead. [01:42.29]Bui told the Reuters news agency, "Almost all households have someone going abroad. [01:49.18]Old people stay but young people must find ways to work abroad [01:54.56]because it's difficult to work at home." [01:58.44]Without jobs, thousands of Vietnamese from poor areas [02:02.81]like Nghe An seek a better life overseas each year. [02:07.84]A major chemical leak three years ago at the Formosa steel factory there only worsened conditions. [02:17.00]"We decided to let my husband work abroad in 2016 [02:21.10]when the Formosa incident happened," said Anna Nguyen. [02:25.65]Her husband went to Ukraine, France and then Britain to find work in a nail salon. [02:33.20]Ha Tinh's state-run newspaper said last month that [02:37.40]over 40,000 people leave the province each year in search of jobs. [02:42.99]"People from these provinces have a long history of going overseas to earn money to send back home," [02:50.80]said Mimi Vu, an anti-trafficking activist based in Ho Chi Minh City. [02:58.44]Experts believe human traffickers charge Vietnamese families [03:02.98]thousands of dollars to send a relative overseas. [03:07.19]Last month, Britain's Ambassador to Vietnam, Gareth Ward, [03:12.33]warned of the dangers of trusting human traffickers. [03:16.54]"They are not friends. They are criminals," he said. [03:20.56]On the website VNExpress, one person commented, [03:25.72]"No matter what the country is, this is sad and depressing... [03:30.36]I think the current life in Vietnam is not too difficult. [03:35.20]Instead of spending hundreds of millions to go abroad, [03:39.24]that amount of money in Vietnam could create many jobs." [03:43.75]I'm Ashley Thompson. [03:45.03]更多聽力請訪問51VOA.COM 宁夏11选5推荐号码
