10 arrested in joint Spain,Morocco anti-trafficking op

MADRID: Ten people have been arrested in a joint Spanish-Moroccan police operation to dismantle a human smuggling network across the Strait of Gibraltar, Spanish police said Tuesday.

Seven of the alleged traffickers were arrested in Torreveja on the western coast of Spain. The network is said to have also smuggled at least 39 Nigerian women to work as prostitutes in Europe. One of the suspects is alleged to have organised at least 40 boat trips for migrants wanting to reach Spain from Morocco since 2008.
