331 individuals who fled are caught abroad, and 221 come back to China on their own

Hundreds of crime suspects on the run overseas have been streaming back to China at the rate of about two a day, the result of a concerted international drive by the Ministry of Public Security and its counterparts abroad.

In the first nine months of the year, 556 fugitives returned to China from 59 countries and regions, including Australia, Canada and the US, said Yang Shaowen, deputy director of the International Cooperation Department of the Ministry of Public Security. Most were "economic fugitives", he said.
