Samsung suspends China supplier over child labor

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Samsung Electronics says it has suspended business ties with a Chinese supplier that allegedly hired children.

The South Korean company says it's found possible evidence of child labor and illegal hiring at Dongguan Shinyang Electronics.

China Labor Watch said children worked at Shinyang for three to six months to meet production targets during a period of high demand.

The report came after Samsung said its audit found no child labor at hundreds of Chinese suppliers.
