Quang Nduyen said he would swap places with her so he could die instead and never thought something like this would happen to her.

He added: "“I love her so much.

"[They] should stay in prison forever, never come out."

Another friend, Thinh, said: "I see Quyen like a member of my family. I can’t tell you how much pain [I felt] when I heard it was bad news.

"The day Quyen died I was pregnant, eight months. My husband did not want to tell me.

"I can’t believe it. We came here to find a better life and [the] Vietnamese can’t believe it."

Another friend, Phap, said he knew Quyen for five years and added: "She was very nice.

"People [are] thinking, ‘why did she have to die’?"
