The Associated Press reports — A young bonded child laborer cries as he is led away after being rescued during a raid by workers from Bachpan Bachao Andolan, or Save the Childhood Movement, at a garment factory in New Delhi, India, on June 12, 2012.

Raids on factories in the Indian capital revealed dozens of migrant kids hard at work Tuesday despite laws against child labor.

Police rounded up 26 children from three textiles factories and a metal processing plant, but dozens more are believed to have escaped. Those captured had all come to New Delhi from the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.
