Spanish police arrest 23 people for 'using voodoo curses'

Spanish police have said they detained 23 people across the country who are suspected of using voodoo curses to force Nigerian women into prostitution in Spain.

The women were recruited in Nigeria with false promises of legal employment and then illegally brought to Spain where they were forced to work as prostitutes, police said in a statement.

Police said the ring carried out "voodoo rituals and black magic to frighten the women and keep them always under control with the threat of 'destroying their souls" or 'making them crazy'."
