China busts enormous child trafficking ring
Police in China have announced they had busted two enormous child trafficking rings, arresting more than 600 suspects and rescuing 178 children.
The black industry of stealing children is big business in China, where desperate families are willing to pay up to £10,000 for a baby boy they can raise as their own.
As many as 70,000 Chinese children are thought to be kidnapped each year, often snatched from rural areas in the north of the country and then funnelled south to families in the provinces of Fujian and Guangdong. Last year, Chinese police managed to rescue some 6,000 of them.
