Another baby trafficking ring busted in #China #childtrafficking

Police in eastern China have busted a human trafficking ring involving poor migrant couples who were selling their babies, a state-run newspaper reported yesterday. Police in Shandong province's Zoucheng city found last month that 17 infants had been sold to Chinese buyers, the Global Times newspaper said. Police have rescued 13 of the babies and sent them to welfare centres, and a search is underway for the other four. Investigating officer Chen Qingwei said that the couples were mainly migrants from poorer areas in Sichuan province in south-west China. Baby boys could be sold for up to 50,000 yuan (S$9,970), while the price for girls was 30,000 yuan, much more than the parents could earn from farming. AP
