China: Stolen Children for Sale

Report China: Stolen Children for Sale

To rob and sell children is a rewarding business in China: Over 20.000 children a year are being kidnapped, estimates the internet platform Baby Come Home.

Some are purchased by childless families - boys become son and heir and girls end up as future, early marrying bride.
