Since April 12, 26 foreign women have been arrested on suspicion of engaging in prostitution in Taipei’s Wanhua District (萬華) after authorities began a campaign to crack down on the illegal sex industry, police said yesterday.

The women include 10 Chinese, five Vietnamese and four Thai nationals, all of whom arrived on tourist visas, the Taipei City Police Department’s Wanhua Precinct said.
