Abducted women and kids rescued by cops

CHINESE police have rescued 33 children and 25 women kidnapped in Guangdong Province this year, the local public security authority announced yesterday.

They were rescued in 46 incidents during a Guangdong police crackdown on increasing crime, said Liu Ancheng, vice director of the provincial public security administration.

Police smashed 55 criminal gangs, cracked 28 illegal gun-trafficking cases, detained 4,457 suspected drug smugglers and investigated 724 homicide cases, said Liu.

He offered no more information about the kidnappings.

Late last month, police in Jiangmen City, Guangdong, announced that they had arrested 10 alleged gang members and rescued 11 children sold to people in the region and in neighboring Fujian Province.

The children, all boys aged three to eight, were abducted from July last year to January. They were returned to their parents.

The alleged head of the gang, a 35-year-old woman, was arrested in a cement factory in Zhuhai, a city on the border of Macau, where she worked as a mill operator.

Chinese police launched a campaign against the trafficking of children and women in early April.
