Hundreds of dogs saved from death in China

Activists in China have saved more than 500 dogs from being killed for food.

Campaingers intercepted a truck carrying the animals to a market in southwest China and a businessman eventually paid $9000 for their release.

The rescue effort was triggered after a social network message went viral on the internet.

Tom Donkin reports.
