China to abolish labor camps, ease 1-child policy

China’s ruling Communist Party announced on Friday that it will loosen its one-child policy and abolish a heavily criticized labor camp system.

Under new rules, couples will be allowed to have two children if one of the parents is an only child. The previous policy limited most urban couples in China to one child and allowed two children for rural families if their first-born was a girl.
