Ring smashed

Romanian authorities have dismantled a human-trafficking ring that transported women to Germany and sold them to Turkish citizens for about –5,000 ($6,700) each, border police said yesterday. Romania, which joined the European Union this year, is one of 11 countries the United Nations lists as the top sources of human trafficking. Police said the six-person gang recruited women in bars in villages in west Romania by promising them well-paid jobs abroad. (Reuters)
