Doctor selling Vietnam kids to Chinese familiesAugust 1st, 2011 - 1:58 pm ICT by IANS
Beijing, Aug 1 (IANS) A Chinese doctor has been found guilty of helping sell Vietnamese children to buyers in China. Two children, less than a week old, were found to have their umbilical cords still attached.
Police in Guangdong and Guangxi Zhuang provinces cracked down on a trafficking gang July 15, and rescued eight children and detained 39 suspects.
The gang had 31 members from China and eight from Vietnam. It had smuggled 21 infants to China since the beginning of June, the Guangzhou Daily reported.
The Vietnamese traffickers smuggled the children from across the border to Guangxi and handed them over to their Chinese partners who later sold them, the Yangcheng Evening News said.
Guangdong police said an obstetrician surnamed Lin took care of the children before buyers were found.
The traffickers transported the children in buses for more 20 hours and even fed them sleeping pills.
The children - most of them boys - were being sold at about 40,000 yuan (around $6,200).
Many buyers did not even know the infants were from Vietnam.
