Europe warned over trafficking

Not enough is being done to prevent the trafficking of young people in south-eastern Europe, a report by two children's charities says...It says thousands of youngsters are smuggled each year to Western Europe to be used in the sex trade or slavery. The report focuses on victims in Albania, Moldova, Romania and Kosovo...In the UK alone, between 1999 and 2003, some 250 children were rescued from trafficking.
