Beduin smugglers involved in helping Africans infiltrate into Israel from Egypt are believed to be stealing organs from refugees unable to pay them large sums of money for their services, CNN reported on Thursday.

The New Generation Foundation for Human Rights and the EveryOne Group, from Italy, have provided evidence of refugees' bodies being found in the Sinai desert with organs missing, according to the report.

CNN quotes a Beduin source as saying the Sawarka Beduin tribe was involved in such organ theft.
