Child trafficking surges in Haiti

Up to 400 cases have been recorded since the 2010 earthquake that devastated the Caribbean nation.

    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.
