Egyptian Baby-Selling Ring Busted

Until recently, a ring of traffickers in Egypt would sell you a baby for $570. Police said Sunday that they had smashed the criminal enterprise based in Cairo, rounding up two nurses and a hospital doctor among five suspects in the case. In a nod to Islamic law, adoption is illegal in Egypt, and many of the babies trafficked by the ring were sold to couples who could not conceive. About 300 babies are thought to have been sold over three years.
