Ad Feedback

A collaborative effort involving more than 10,000 police in China recently led to the arrest of 802 people suspected of child trafficking.

China's Ministry of Public Security said officers working with the department busted two major trafficking rings July 5, rescuing 181 children across 15 provinces.

Following the raid, authorities vowed to continue to crack down on the practice.

"We have zero tolerance when it comes to child trafficking and will make the utmost efforts to make sure that every trafficker is caught," Chen Shiqu, director of the Ministry of Public Security's anti-human trafficking office, said Friday.

Shao Zhongyuan, one of the most wanted fugitives in China for child trafficking, was among those detained.

The children were sent to local welfare homes.

Chinese courts usually hand out harsh punishments to convicted child traffickers, including the death sentence.
