12 more arrested in China's tainted milk scandal
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.
The dozen arrests throughout the province brought the total in custody to 18, said Shi Guizhong, spokesman for the Hebei provincial police.
