China Cracks Down on Abduction of Women

On Sunday (4-28), China launched a national campaign against crime which will aim to reduce gang-related prostitution and the abduction and sale of women and children.

According to Ministry of Public Security, Zou Chuanji, cases of rape, murder, and theft increased by more than 10 percent from January to March.
