BEIJING, Nov. 8 (Xinhua) -- A total of 759 Chinese suspected of telecom and online fraud have been repatriated to China from Mongolia, according to China's Ministry of Public Security.

They were among the 790 suspects captured by law enforcement authorities of Mongolia in the capital city of Ulan Bator on Oct. 29 in accordance with the consensus reached between the two countries on jointly combating telecom and online fraud crimes, the ministry said Thursday.

Nearly 1,000 computers and several thousand mobile phones, as well as other tools for committing crimes, were confiscated by Mongolian authorities.

This was the highest number of suspects captured during a single police operation this year since China started to carry out law enforcement cooperation with the police forces of other countries.

This year, Chinese police have also conducted joint law enforcement operations on telecom and online fraud with other countries including Cambodia, the Philippines and Laos, escorting 1,336 suspects in total back to China.
