Black Globalization

This report via Al Jazeera regarding the increasingly lucrative trade in Pakistan regarding human organs for transplant. An excerpt:

Ten people were found detained in the house and four of them had already had one of their kidneys removed, police said.
Malik Mohammad Iqbal, Lahore police chief, said: "These poor people were given tranquillisers and were deprived of their kidneys without their consent."

Mohammad Arif, the man raised the alarm, told Reuters news agency: "They promised me a job but instead brought me to a house where I was kept for about 15 days with the other people before I ran away."

I can't even begin to imagine having an organ stolen.
