Reports of child trafficking in Haiti have been increasing following the mayhem of last year's devastating earthquake. Officials say that 400 cases have been recorded during this period.

They say children are smuggled out of the country to meet the needs of primarily three markets: domestic work, prostitution and organ sale.
