Romanian police on Tuesday busted a human egg-trafficking ring involving Israeli specialists in assisted reproduction, just months after several Israeli doctors were sentenced in a similar case.
Police and prosecutors said the network consisted of 11 people, including Israeli doctors and Romanian managers of a Bucharest clinic, but declined to say how many people were detained as the searches were ongoing.
According to police, the suspects recruited Romanian women — mostly impoverished students — and paid them 600 to 800 euros ($800-$1,100) for their eggs.
