Police arrested 12 more people Thursday as China expanded a crackdown in a scandal involving tainted milk powder that has killed three babies and sickened more than 6,200 others.

Meanwhile, dozens of parents, some cradling babies, lined up outside the Hebei province headquarters of the dairy company whose milk powder has been linked to most of the illnesses. They wanted refunds.
