Spain smashes gang that made Romanians beg as human statues

Spanish police said on Sunday they had smashed a trafficking ring which brought Romanians, many of them with disabilities, to Spain where they were forced to beg in the streets dressed as mimes and human statues.

Officers arrested three suspected members of the gang, including its alleged leader, and freed ten Romanians who were being held by the network as part of the operation carried out in the northwestern region of Galicia, police said. Some of the six women who were freed had also been forced into prostitution.
