I’m going to break my long silence (I’ll be very glad, and probably a lot more blogductive, when this semester’s over) with a very short, yet intriguing article in today’s 新京报/The Beijing News:

山西解救被拐妇幼67人

Shanxi rescues 67 kidnapped women and children

The report comes from a Xinhua release and the journalist named is one Hu Jingguo. Trouble is, it’s very short and kinda short on details. Anyway, here it is:

记者从山西省公安厅获悉,“打拐”专项行动开展以来,山西40天内打掉5个重大犯罪团伙,解救被拐妇女儿童67人。

This reporter learned from the Shanxi Province Public Security Department that since the launch of a special “anti-trafficking” operation, Shanxi has broken 5 large criminal gangs within 40 days and rescued 67 trafficked women and children.

自公安部4月9日在全国公安机关部署“打拐”专项行动以来,截至5月18日,山西共破案37起,刑事拘留43人,解救被拐卖儿童36人、妇女31人。

From April 9, when the Ministry of Public Security deployed Public Security organs throughout the country on a special “anti-trafficking” operation, to May 18, Shanxi has solved 37 cases, detained 37 people, and rescued 36 trafficked children and 31 trafficked women.

Now, this is, of course, superb news, but it leaves me hungry for more information….. Google to the rescue…. or not. Oh dear, the only Google news result is the same article published on Netease. Baidu? Hexun, this time, but otherwise just as useless. Shanxi Youth News seems to be even less helpful.

So I guess I’m just going to have to wonder about the rest of this story, all that stuff that didn’t make it through Xinhua, unless anybody out there can find any more info than I’m getting.
