China Arrests 355, Rescues 89 from Child Abduction

A national operation in China has busted nine child abduction gangs, arresting 355 suspects and rescuing 89 children. China’s Ministry of Public Security said on Monday that it conducted the nine-province operation in December after receiving reports of child abductions from southern China’s Fujian and Yunnan provinces. The child trafficking activities spanned several provinces. The suspects bought abducted children in provinces including Yunnan and Sichuan and transported them to other provinces, where they were sold for huge profits. In 2011, Chinese police rescued 8,660 abducted children.—AP
