By : Xinhua | Published: 2013-September-29

Chinese police rescued 92 children and two women while they seized 301 suspects, part of an "outsized" human trafficking network.

Members of the network were said to follow clear divisions of work: kidnappers collected children in southwest China's Yunnan and Sichuan while deliverymen drove them to other regions to the hands of sellers, according to the statement released Friday by the Ministry of Public Security.

Police investigations started in March with a child trafficking case in central China's Henan Province, and the arrests were made on Sept. 11 with the joint efforts of police in 11 provincial-level regions, said the statement.

Despite progresses, antitrafficking work is complex and difficult. The ministry revealed that it is cooperating with the Supreme People's Court and the Supreme People's Procuratorate in drafting a judicial document to impose harsher punishment on both traffickers and buyers.

According to the statement, parents selling their own children will also be severely punished in accordance with law.
