BEIJING (VNS)— China's Ministry of Public Security yesterday returned 10 Vietnamese children who had been trafficked to China at a ceremony held in Guangxi Province.
The children were rescued in a special operation jointly co-ordinated by the public security ministries of both countries.
In February 2011, Guangxi police received information about a criminal gang that smuggled Vietnamese children to localities in China's Guangdong Province. The operation was set up to investigate the case.
In July of the same year, Chinese police arrested 43 people suspected of trafficking children, and rescued 10 Vietnamese children.
The Chinese Ministry of Public Security has rescued and returned 1,804 trafficked women and 41 children to Vietnamese authorities since 2009.-VNS
