U.S. blasts China over treatment of North Korean refugees

The United States on Wednesday criticized China for rampant human trafficking and slave labor taking place within its borders, and deplored Beijing's treatment of North Koreans subjected to sexual exploitation.

In its annual Trafficking in Persons Report, the State Department said China lacks efforts to combat human trafficking, although it acknowledges that Beijing has made some progress.
