Two Chinese - one of whom became a member of a criminal gang - have told of their nightmare experiences in gambling abroad.

A Beijing resident, surnamed Li, said he had been held in a small, dark house by gangsters for "dozens of hours" after failing to repay gambling debts of 200,000 yuan ($29,850).

"I was told I would be released from the house only after my family sent me this sum of money to repay my debts," said Li, quoted by a police officer.
