LONDON, Dec 21 (Reuters) – Two men were found guilty in a London court of the manslaughter of 39 men, women and children from Vietnam after they were found suffocated in the back of a container truck, PA Media reported on Monday.

The deaths shocked Britain and Vietnam and shone a spotlight on the illicit global trade that sends the poor of Asia, Africa and the Middle East on perilous journeys to the West.
