Police in China have rescued 89 children kidnapped for sale by human traffickers.

It follows a nationwide operation to break-up two child smuggling rings. The majority of the infants taken were aged between 10 days and four months.

Police say the traffickers, who are mostly Vietnamese residents, abducted children from Vietnam and sold them in China’s southern regions of Guandong and Guangxi.

Chinese police have now arrested more than 350 people this month in connection with child smuggling.
