Blood Trafficking Price in Egypt

A medical technician and four other people were fined by an Egyptian court for selling blood on the black market.

The group would bring street children to an apartment and give them $1.48 (10 Egyptian Pounds) and a meal in order to draw blood. The group would then sell a bag of blood on the black market for $12.61 (85 Pounds).
