Trafficking routes from outside Europe

A number of key trafficking routes from outside Europe have also been highlighted.

Italy and Greece are the first stops in Europe for victims trafficked via Libya, especially Tripoli, or from Somalia via the Suez Canal.

Another route is to Spain via West Africa. Police say there has been a recent increase in the number of victims from Africa, notably Nigeria.

Women from Brazil and Asia have also been rescued.
