Spain says brothel gang lured Latam women
  
MADRID, June 12 (Reuters) - Police said on Saturday they had broken up a
gang which enticed Latin American women to Spain as illegal immigrants with
promises of jobs as waitresses, then forced them into prostitution.

Police arrested 13 Spaniards suspected of involvement in the gang which
brough women from Argentina, Brazil and Colombia. They also detained 45
women.

Once the women arrived, they were forced under threat of violence or death
to work in hostess bars in Madrid and the northern region of Asturia.
