 China's Controversial One-child Policy Loosened
China's hugely controversial one-child policy is all set to be loosened a bit.

The country's top legislative committee has also abolished camps for 're-education through labor'.

According to Japan Times, the decisions were taken by the standing committee of the National People's Congress, China's rubber-stamp parliament.

The loosening of the one-child policy will allow couples where either parent has no siblings to have two children.

The abolition of re-education through labor, known as "laojiao," will see existing inmates freed, the report added.
