Father sells 13-year-old daughter for gambling debt in southern Turkey
A 13-year-old girl, who was sold by her father to cover a gambling debt, has been rescued by police in the southern province of Adana, Doğan news agency reported today.

The girl, Ş.Ç., reportedly dissapeared on Apr. 4 in southeastern province of Şanlıurfa. Her mother reported the situation to Şanlıurfa prosecutors and claimed that her husband could have sold the girl to 20-year-old Mehmet Karamus, because of his gambling debt.

Police questioned the father, Ahmet Ç., but he was released after saying that he did not know Mehmet Karamus or where his daugter was.

As if that wasn't bad enough; it goes on:

"Her father gave her in excange for his gambling debt" Karamus said at the first questioning. "I did not kidnap her." Karamus, who was already married and father of one, said he had taken the girl as his second wife.
