'Baby factory' uncovered in Nigeria

Six pregnant girls rescued from child traffickers who were planning to force the mothers to sell their babies.

    Nigerian police say they have rescued six pregnant girls from child traffickers who were planning to sell their babies.

    Two men and a woman have been arrested in the case, which is the second so-called baby factory to be uncovered in a week.

    Last week, at least 23 girls and four babies were found in Umuaka, in eastern Nigeria's Imo State.
