Spain: police bust sex-slave ring exploiting transsexuals

MADRID (AP) " Spanish police say they have arrested three members of a criminal group engaged in human trafficking and the sexual exploitation of foreign transsexuals and transvestites.

The police say in a statement the sex-slave ring lured poor transsexuals and transvestites "mainly from Venezuela" to Spain, where they were then forced to work as prostitutes.

Police say the members of the ring threatened to harm the victims and their families and regularly moved them "all around Spain."
