Long Abstract: The three were convicted in August by the Intermediate People's Court of Kunming of abducting and selling 11 boys. The Xinhua news agency says two of them snatched the toddlers, all between the age of two and three, from villages in their home county of Huize between April 2001 and November 2003. They then sold the children for between $US290 and $US422 to the third person, who in turn offloaded them to three other traffickers in the southeastern province of Fujian for $US1,300 each. Seven of the children have since been found by police but four are still missing. Xinhua says several others implicated in the trafficking ring have received jail terms ranging from six years to life in prison. The AFP news agency says human trafficking in China has become rife, with police announcing in March that 42,215 women and children kidnapped during the three years, from 2001, had been located and freed. However, it was not revealed how many other women and children remain unaccounted for.
