Policia Nacional have said they have rescued 15 transgender Brazilians from forced prostitution in the city of Murcia.
The victims were beaten, forced to use and sell drugs, and often kept locked inside a flat.
They are also said to have been threatened with the use of black magic if they did not comply. Objects related to the ritual-filled Santería religion were found in the flat.
Thirteen suspects were detained for allegedly running the ring. Four have been detained, while the rest have been released on bail. The investigation continues.
