Smuggling Ring Uncovered In Dominican Republic

Authorities in the Dominican Republic have uncovered a ring of people traffickers who smuggle Haitian children into the country and put them to work as beggars.

The top immigration official in the northern Dominican region, Juan Isidro Perez, said his agency would soon launch a programme to eradicate the practice.

Mr Perez said Dominican police and troops will work with immigration agents to apprehend the traffickers.
