A young girl has been smuggled out of Africa and sold for organ harvesting, authorities have revealed.
"Traffickers are exploiting the demand for organs and the vulnerability of children. It's unlikely that a trafficker is going to take this risk and bring just one child into the UK. It is likely there was a group," said Bharti Patel, the chief executive of Ecpat UK, the child protection charity.
The girl was taken to the UK from Somalia with the intention of removing her organs and selling them to those in need of a transplant, reports The Telegraph.
Child protection charities believe the case in unlikely to be isolated, and suspect that smugglers used a group of children.
