Murder victim close to being identified

Police investigating the murder of a Chinese woman in Belfast have travelled to China in an effort to identify her.

Two detectives have travelled to the Far East to try to find the family of the woman who was found murdered in the back of a car that was stopped by police at a checkpoint in north Belfast in June.

Police said they are "optimistic" that they will be able to identify her and return her remains to her family.

Two men were remanded in custody last month charged in connection with the woman's murder.
