Police: 10 Israelis arrested for organ-trafficking

Police say they have arrested 10 Israelis over the past few weeks on suspicion they trafficked in organs.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says one of the suspects is a doctor affiliated with a Tel Aviv-area hospital.

He says the alleged organ-trafficking operation was international, but didn't immediately have details about the countries involved.

He says the names of the suspects will not be released before they appear before an Israeli court.

Rosenfeld spoke on Wednesday. He did not have a date for the court appearance or any further details.
