Children selling kidneys to feed family
A well-known journalist from Baluchistan, Malik Siraj Akbar, has reported Baluch children who are escaping Pakistan military operation in their occupied homeland are forced to sell their kidneys because of poverty.
The West in general, and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in particular, has been accused of discriminating against the Baluch internally displaced persons.
There are no laws in Pakistan against the selling of body organs.
