Abstract: The monstruous injustice meted out to the people of Nithari has made the Uttar Pradesh government defensive, especially now that the details of one of the worst kinds of human trafficking have started to unfold on the eve of the state polls. It may not be right to put the entire blame on Mulayam Singh Yadav’s government. Child trafficking in the region may be going on for half a decade and begun well before Yadav had taken over in 2003.

Abstract: Social taboos and economic desperation fuel child trafficking. Ten years ago, I glimpsed the problem when I was riding in a taxi through the village of Assinovskaya in Chechnya. I saw six children standing in a line beside a wooden fence. When I wondered why they were standing there, the taxi driver answered, "To be sold." The driver said that mothers were unable to take care of the children, so they sold them to well-off people. "One girl has already been sold," he said. "She was nice and beautiful with fair hair. They bought her because she was very small. These ones are bigger and no one wants to buy them."

Abstract: Victims of human trafficking should be allowed to stay in Britain temporarily under a European convention which must be signed by the Government, the Conservative Party said today. David Davis, Shadow Home Secretary, unveiled proposals to combat human trafficking that he called "a hideous trade in human misery, which is spiralling out of control".

Abstract: LAHORE, 3 January (IRIN) - Every morning, Aziz, 12, cycles to school, his satchel balanced carefully over the handlebars. His life has changed dramatically over the past year and the former camel jockey, who spent five years in the Gulf until his return in 2005, is beginning to adapt to a different way of life. "I will never forget the camels and being strapped onto those beasts. But I now hope I can put that behind me, get an education and go on to work in an office," Aziz said in his village near the southern Punjab town of Muzaffargarh.

Abstract: Islamabad, Dec.30 (ANI): Smugglers in Pakistan reportedly earn about Rs.10 billion through human trafficking to the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This year, according to The News, over 150,000 people have been sold to various Arab states, and well-placed sources have told the paper that thousands have been smuggled and sold during the last four years. They claimed that human trafficking victims are gathered in Karachi and delivered to inter-provincial agents, who take them to the Pakistan-Iran border at Mand Billo in Balochistan, from where they are deported to the UAE.
