Child Traffickers Sentenced in China

Jail for China child traffickers
Five people in eastern China have been sentenced to between seven years and life in jail for kidnapping and selling children, state media has reported.

The gang kidnapped four children in the city of Longyang in Fujian province and sold them in a nearby city in 2005 and 2006, Xinhua news agency said...

Correspondents say the trade in children is seen as a growing problem in China.

The problem is exacerbated by China's strict birth control policies, which limit many couples to only one child, and impose fines if they exceed the limit.
