- Six people have been arrested in Pakistan on charges related to an organ-trafficking ring, after local police said they found a missing teen boy in an underground lab with one of his kidneys removed.
- Young, vulnerable persons were duped by the suspects with promises of lucrative jobs into having their organs removed, primarily kidneys, to be sold for around $4,000, according to police reports cited in Agence France-Presse.
- “It was only after we followed the evidence and leads that we discovered that there was an organ-trafficking operation behind the boy’s disappearance,” Rehan Anjum, a spokesman for Punjab police, told AFP.
