TOKYO--A woman was detained in China Tuesday after leaving Japan using the passport of a friend whose body was sent across the country by parcel post marked as a doll, reports said.
The Japanese-Brazilian woman, 29, turned herself in to the Japanese consulate-general in Shanghai and was detained by local police for a suspected immigration offence, the Jiji and Kyodo news agencies quoted Japanese police sources as saying.
Japanese police are expected to seek her extradition, the reports said.
