Police nab baby-kidnapping suspect

POLICE have caught a woman in a mountain cave in east China's Fujian Province who was on China's most-wanted list for allegedly abducting 29 babies, the Ministry of Public Security said on its Website.

Wu Qiuyue, 52, from the province's Anxi County, was captured on Tuesday, China News Service reported.

She was the 19th person to be seized from a list of 20 child-abduction suspects.

Wu was named a top-level suspect by the ministry on June 4.

Wu hid in the cave for more than eight months after the police launched a nationwide campaign to stop baby trafficking, the report said.

Her husband shopped for her food and bought a gas cylinder so that she could cook in the cave, police said.

Wu allegedly confessed that each child sold for only several hundred yuan.

She said she thought of surrendering but was too afraid.
