A Chinese man has been reunited with his father 24 years after he was abducted as a toddler from a vegetable market.

In 1991, 4-year-old Sun Bin was taken by child traffickers from his hometown in Sichuan province and sold to a family thousands of miles away, in Jiangsu province on the country's eastern coast, Chinese state media reported.

On Tuesday, Sun was finally reacquainted with his 60-year-old father, Sun Youhong, and a younger sister he had never met. The moment was captured in a moving series of photographs.

"I was happy. I was grateful," the father said. "But I was also bitter."
