Smuggling people through Beja territory

In this interesting article, the author outlines a disturbing story. Young women are kidnapped in Eritrea and perhaps Ethiopia, transported north through Sudan, to Egypt, and across the Sinai peninsula to Suadi Arabia where they are sold for $2000 to work as housemaids.

The Rashaida tribe are implicated as the perpetrators of these activities. A number of links provide circumstantial evidence.
