Notorious South Korean facility that kidnapped, abused and enslaved children and the disabled for a generation was also shipping children overseas for adoption as part of a massive profit-seeking enterprise.

The adoptions AP found took place between 1979 and 1986.

Brothers then sent these children to adoption agencies, which placed them with families in North America, Europe and Australia.
