eBay babies?

The BBC reports on alleged babies for auction on Chinese eBay.

"Chinese police are investigating a report of attempted baby trafficking on an internet auction site, according to a state-owned newspaper. The advertisement was reportedly placed on eBay's Chinese website, Eachnet. Boys were advertised for 28,000 yuan ($3,450) while girls were offered for 13,000 yuan ($1,603), Eachnet manager Tang Lei told the China Daily. The offer could have been a hoax, but it comes as baby trafficking is seen as an increasing problem in China."
