Girls Kidnapped in Columbia, Possibly Sold Into Prostitution
In the neighborhood of La Manuelita in Columbia, seven girls aged 11 to 15 have been kidnapped in the last year. Reports suggest the girls may have been taken to Japan and sold into prostitution with no passports or documents to escape. Five girls who escaped kidnapping attacks told similar stories that they were each photographed by a man in a car and a few days later grabbed by another man who was later arrested but released because he had not been caught in the act. The mothers interviewed by CNN said they are waging their own private war in the face of government indifference and that the wealth of a family often determines whether or not a kidnapped child will be found
