Iraq - misc. child trafficking cases

Criminal gangs are profiting from the cheap cost of buying infants and the bureaucratic muddle that makes it relatively easy to move them overseas. 

According to a senior police officer, at least 15 Iraqi children were sold every month, some overseas, some internally, some for adoption, some for sexual abuse. The main countries in which they are sold are Jordan, Turkey, Syria and some European countries including Switzerland, Ireland, the UK, Portugal and Sweden.
