Abstract: RAHIM YAR KHAN, Pakistan (Reuters) - Hameed Moosa is lame. Nasir Hussain's face is disfigured by burns. But the scars these two young Pakistani boys bear from their time as camel jockeys in the Gulf are more than physical as they struggle to adjust to life back home with families who can barely afford to care for them. Moosa, 15, was six when he began racing camels in the Gulf. His career ended at the age of 13 when he was permanently injured from a thrashing he received after losing a race. A chunk of his thigh had to be cut away after a wound from the beating became gangrenous. "The pain is always with me," Moosa said.

Abstract: LEONARDO DICAPRIO hasn't yet turned up in a movie about Blood Chocolate, but as valentines from coast to coast open heart-shaped boxes of bonbons today, they might give some thought to an industry that is nearly as harmful to human rights in Africa today as the diamond trade was a decade ago. About 70% of the world's cocoa is grown in West Africa, with Ivory Coast accounting for about 40%. Just as blood diamonds helped finance some of Africa's most brutal wars, cocoa helps subsidize political instability and bloodshed in Ivory Coast. But chocolate's bitter aftertaste comes from the fact that the industry is a magnet for child slavery.

Abstract: Le jugement rendu, vendredi 2 février, par la 13e chambre du tribunal correctionnel de Bobigny s'est voulu exemplaire. En condamnant à la fois les organisateurs ou les intermédiaires de ce trafic de bébés bulgares - qui porte sur 22 enfants entre 2001 et 2005 - et la quarantaine de parents acheteurs, le tribunal a rappelé que "la personne humaine ne peut faire l'objet d'un commerce". Mais ce jugement, qui consacre l'entrée dans la jurisprudence du délit de "traite d'être humain", introduit dans le code pénal par la loi du 18 mars 2003, a tenu compte de la diversité des situations.
