BBC Special Report (Oct 2011) - Hundreds of African children trafficked to the UK

Over the last four years, at least 400 African children have been abducted and trafficked to the UK and rescued by the British authorities, according to figures obtained by the BBC.

Christine Beddoe, director of the anti-trafficking charity Ecpat UK, says a cultural belief in the power of human blood in so-called juju rituals is playing a part in the demand for African children.
