Pakistani Children Return Home after Being Smuggled to Middle East

  • VOA News

A Pakistani official says 86 male children smuggled to the United Arab Emirates to work as camel jockeys have been re-patriated. Child protection specialist Faiza Asghar says the children arrived onFriday in the Pakistani city of Lahore (the capital of Punjab province) after a flight from the United Arab Emirates and were driven to a government shelter. Ms. Asghar says the children had been in the United Arab Emirates between three and seven years. Many of them were from four to 12 years old. Poor families in Pakistan are often paid by agents to send their children abroad for use in traditional camel racing, a popular sport in the Gulf countries.
