In this Aug. 13, 2010 photo, policemen detain suspected prostitutes in a campaign to crack down on prostitution in Xi'an, in northwestern China's Shaanxi province. Police in China frequently beat, torture and arbitrarily detain suspected sex workers, often with little or no evidence that they engaged in prostitution, Human Rights Watch said in a report Tuesday, May 14, 2013, calling on the government to discipline abusive officers.
