Twin babies 'stolen and sold' by doctor in China found
BEIJING (AFP) - Twin baby girls allegedly stolen and sold by the obstetrician who delivered them in China have been recovered by police, state media reported on Friday.
The girls, born last month in the northern province of Shaanxi, were allegedly victims of the same female doctor who sold a baby boy reunited with his parents earlier this week.
The obstetrician, Zhang Shuxia, told the twins' mother in the delivery room that her babies had "deadly congenital diseases" and convinced her give them up, China National Radio reported.
Zhang also said their arms and legs were "broken" and stopped other relatives seeing them, the report added.
