March 13, 2012 - Among those rescued by the police were more than eight thousand children kidnapped from their homes. Critics blame the country's one child policy for creating a thriving black market, where babies are abducted and then sold on for adoption.

More than fifteen thousand women were also kidnapped. Some were used as workers, others forced into marriage or prostitution.

According to officials more than three thousand human trafficking gangs were broken up, but the authorities did not say how many people in total were abducted last year.

They vowed
to step up their campaign against human trafficking. As these figures show, the abduction of women and children remains a serious problem in China.
