Crazy stuff happening in China.

Chinese police arrested 802 people and charged them with child trafficking. Police have also rescued 181 children!

Child trafficking is huge in China because of the country's strict one child policy. Families' preference for boys because of tradition has driven the market for male babies.

Many trafficked babies are kidnapped, but some poor families sell their babies or sometimes they sell their baby because they do not want a baby girl.

The sting operation was started at a clinic where families could apparently come and sell their babies - the doctor at the clinic has been arrested.

In another province a bus was stopped and searched. On this bus, police found four families trying to sell their babies.

A baby girl in China can fetch up to $8,000 and a baby boy can garner $12,000.

Chinese courts often hand down severe punishments for child traffickers including sometimes the death penalty.
