Nepal Organ Trafficking

Nepal Organ Trafficking

In this Sunday, Nov. 2, 2014 photo, women sit in the back of a truck and return home from a trip to a market for daily necessities at Hokshe, a village of tiny farms and mud huts that has been the center of the illegal organ trade in Nepal for more than a decade. For more than a decade, traffickers openly stalked the village, high in the mountains outside Kathmandu, scouting for farmers and poor laborers to lure or dupe into giving up kidneys. Many residents are illiterate and were all too willing to go under the knife. (AP Photo/ Niranjan Shrestha)
