Sex trafficking

Sex trafficking - Twenty-four suspected members of a sex trafficking ring accused of forcing Nigerian women into prostitution in France have gone on trial today, the latest case to highlight the growing use of Nigerian migrants as sex slaves in Europe. Nigeria was the main country of origin of the migrants arriving across the Mediterranean to Italy in 2016 and 2017, though their numbers have since dropped. Nigerians now outnumber Chinese or Eastern European sex workers on the streets of France and some other European countries. Last year, 15 members of a Paris-based female-led pimping ring known as the "Authentic Sisters" were sentenced to up to 11 years in prison for forcing girls into sex slavery in France.
