A woman has been held by police on suspicion of abandoning her child by using a courier service to send the newborn to a local children's home, according to police in Fuzhou, Fujian province.

The woman, identified by police only as Luo, is said to have packed up her newborn baby girl in plastic bags, put it in a cloth bag, and called a delivery service on Wednesday, saying she wanted to send something to the Fuzhou children's home.

When the courier requested to see what was inside the parcel, she refused to open the package for inspection.
