Israelis charged with human organ sales

Five
Israelis, including a retired army general, have been charged with
running a human organ sales ring that ensnared dozens of potential
victims.

Court papers say the ring exploited the desperate condition of sick people, calling it a “form of modern slavery”.

Police said the traffickers allegedly offered up to €70,000 per kidney but in at least two cases did not pay the donors.

The
charges say donors were sought through adverts. Then they were flown
from Israel to Europe, South America or Southeast Asia, where the
organs were extracted in illegal procedures.
