China Rescued 1,200 Abducted Foreign Women in 2012, Daily Says

Chinese authorities freed 1,281 abducted foreign women last year as criminal gangs shifted their human-trafficking networks to Asia after a crackdown in North America, the state-run China Daily newspaper said today.

While most victims were from neighboring countries, police also rescued women from South American nations such as Colombia, the newspaper said, citing Chen Shiqu, director of the Ministry of Public Security’s human trafficking task force.

Human-trafficking got worse in the region in 2012 because of successful efforts to tackle it in the U.S. and Canada, the newspaper said, citing Dai Peng, a professor of criminal investigation at the People’s Public Security University of China.

The newspaper said 84 abducted foreign children were also rescued and sent home.
