Police rescue 19 stolen boys

POLICE in southwest China have rescued 19 boys after breaking a ring that trafficked children from Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Two of the rescued boys have been reunited with their families, China News Service reported today.

Police have traced the families of another 12 boys (11 from Guangxi and one from Yunnan Province) after referring to the national DNA databank set up by the Ministry of Public Security for missing children to help them find their families.

One suspect surnamed Lan was caught on October 13 and other five members were later seized. Lan allegedly told police the ring had trafficked more than 30 children in Guangxi, mostly boys aged between three and six playing alone at wet markets, plazas and railway lounges.

The members lured the boys with candies, took them on a train to Fujian Province and sold them there, police allege.

Guangxi police have cracked 149 human trafficking cases since a national clampdown started on April 9 and rescued 207 women and children. They have smashed 24 trafficking rings and caught 228 suspects.
