Human trafficking in Europe?

Jump to last reply

I saw the movie TAKEN which depicts the kidnapping of American young women in France and an elaborate network that sells them into sex slavery.

I know that human trafficking is a problem worldwide. But is this movie at all realistic? How many westerners are trafficked? My impression has been that human traffickers target women from eastern Europe and the third world and lure them into slavery with false job advertisements and help with illegal immigration.

Does anyone care to educate me further?
