China Arrests 40 People on Charges of Child Trafficking

Xinhua has reported that 40 people have been arrested on charges of trafficking at least 22 children. From AP:

It says the ring bought babies in Yunnan, one of China’s most impoverished provinces, and sold them to families in relatively prosperous Fujian.

It says officials have traced 22 babies who were trafficked by the ring and are searching for others.

China’s thriving black market in endures despite harsh penalties, including death. Some babies are sold by their parents while many others are simply stolen.

This news comes after it as revealed that family planning officials in Hunan are suspected of confiscating babies born out of plan and selling them for overseas adoption.
