BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- A German woman and a male friend face prosecution for human trafficking after they put the woman's daughter up for
auction on the Internet at a starting price of one euro, about $1.20, authorities said Wednesday.
A photograph of the 8-year-old child was posted by the man, from the Bavarian town of Traunstein, who later told police he had placed the offer to
test the online auction system.
The senior state prosecutor investigating the case said both the man, 35, and mother, 41, faced charges of attempted child trafficking.
"Three people made offers for the child and the bidding price reached 25.50 euros [$30.25] before the item was removed after between three to four
hours by the company's security," he said.
now this is pretty weird......any feedback?
