Kuala Lumpur - Police have rescued nine children and arrested 33 suspected members of a child trafficking syndicate in northern Malaysia, a state police chief said Thursday. 

The nine children, aged between two months and eight-years, were rescued separately in a police operation that started in December last year in the northern states of Penang, Kedah and Perak, according to Penang police chief Abdul Rahim Hanafi.

Abdul Rahim said among the 33 arrested suspects was a woman in her 50s, who was believed to be the mastermind of the syndicate.
