Dead babies found in China river

31/3/10

The bodies of 21 babies, believed to have been dumped by hospitals, have washed ashore on a riverbank in eastern China, state media has said. Video footage showed that the bodies, stashed in yellow plastic bags and at least one marked “medical waste,” included some infants who were several months old. Residents discovered the remains under a bridge in the city of Jining, Shandong province, over the weekend. Some wore identification tags with their mothers’ names, birth dates, measurements and weights.
