China Rescues 89 Children From Trafficking Rings, Xinhua Reports

Chinese police rescued 89 children from nine child trafficking rings, the official Xinhua News Agency reported late yesterday.

Authorities arrested 355 suspects in the operation that included police officers from nine regions, including the provinces of Fujian, Yunnan, Sichuan, Anhui and Guangdong, Xinhua reported, citing the Ministry of Public Security.

Demand from couples otherwise unable to have children for infants, particularly male kids, has made human trafficking a “serious problem” in China, Xinhua reported. A healthy male infant can be sold for as much as 90,000 yuan ($14,400) in wealthier provinces such as Fujian and Guangdong, Xinhua reported, citing Wang Xizhang, deputy head of the criminal investigation division of Fujian’s public security department.

Authorities will seek to find the parents of the rescued children by using a national DNA database established for anti-trafficking purposes, Xinhua reported.
