Camaroon authorities shut down extensive trafficking ring

On Twitter Freedom United linked to this article on their site.

Currently, abduction is involved in under ten percent of trafficking cases in the US. That isn't the case in Central Africa where both adults and children are abducted and used in pretty much all aspects of trafficking, including child soldiers. This particular gang was discovered when the bodies of three children, ages 2, 4, and 7, were found at a property owned by gang members. It is believed that the group was operating in nearby nations as well, so hopefully stopping them will make area residents safer.

On the other side of the equation, the NGO Children's Rights is working to educate parents on how to protect their children from traffickers. They are also helping parents whose children who have been abducted, over 20 cases in only a couple of months,  but it is always preferable to prevent the crime in the first place so I'm happy that they are working towards that.
