South Africa’s Hawks rescued 10 women from an alleged human trafficking ring and arrested five people in early morning raids on Sunday in Rustenburg and Kuruman. News24 reports that the women were reportedly from Limpopo, Lesotho, and Namibia and were trafficked to work in brothels disguised as bed and breakfast accommodation. Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi explained that the arrests were a culmination of an investigation which lasted more than a year.
