The clinics in the Huaiyin district of Jinan, capital of Shandong, were raided on Sunday night asdoctors were preparing for a kidney transplant, said an official with the city's police bureau.

China bans organ transplants from living donors except for spouses, blood relatives andadopted family members. However, reports about illegal transplants indicate there appears tobe a large underground network profiting from the country's demand for donor organs.
