Human Trafficking in Yemen

According to security services in Yemen, human traffickers were paid $1,000 per person for trafficking people from Yemen into Egypt.  The victims then had their eyes and kidney taken by organ traffickers.

In a separate incident, an organ trafficker sold the kidney of a Yemeni farmer for $5,000. It was previously reported that kidney brokers in Yemen can make up to $60,000 brokering an organ transplant.
