British police discovered on Tuesday a children human trafficking network that compelled tens of minors from Romania to beg and steal on London streets, London Evening Standard reads. In a series of raids conducted in East London the police found 103 children who lived at 16 different addresses.

17 of the children were immediately taken under police protection and others, including a three year old child were taken to the hospital. The operation is part of a common operation conducted by both Romania and British authorities to anihilate human trafficking.
