PARIS: Five people have been convicted in Kosovo in connection with an elaborate organ-trafficking network that lured poor people to the country and then sold their kidneys and other organs to wealthy transplant recipients from Israel, the United States, Canada and Germany, charging as much as $130,000 for each organ.

Most of the harvested organs were then sold to recipients in Israel while others went to Canadians, Poles and Germans. But while the recipients got a new lease of life the donors often went unpaid and were abandoned.
