BEIJING - Police in China have arrested 608 people suspected of selling children and freed 178 children, including some infants, in a crackdown spanning 10 provinces on child trafficking, officials said on Wednesday.

Police arrested the suspects on Nov. 30, the Ministry of Public Security said in a statement, calling the crackdown "one of the biggest victories for anti-trafficking".

Police in the southwestern province of Sichuan had discovered in May that a group led by a man named Cai Lianchao sold 26 children to other regions, the ministry said.
