BEIJING, July 6 (Xinhua) -- Chinese police on Monday broke up two major child-trafficking gangs, arrested 802 suspects and freed 181 children, the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) said Thursday.

Under the command of the MPS, more than 10,000 police officers took actions simultaneously, catching all the suspects and rescuing all the children in 15 provincial regions including Hebei, Shandong, Henan, Sichuan, Yunnan, according to an MPS statement.

Shao Zhongyuan, an A-level-wanted suspect involved in a child-trafficking gang that trafficked more than 100 children, has also been arrested in Pingyi county, Shandong province, the statement said.

An unidentified police officer from the MPS said police have stopped child trafficking from increasing, but the illegal practice was still prominent in some areas.

Therefore, the police around the country will further implement the zero tolerance policy to child trafficking, the officer said.
