Police arrested a man and a woman suspected of human trafficking for prostitution and pimping on Wednesday. The two are suspected of importing women from Ukraine and Russia to work in the sex trade in Israel.

Six women that were employed by the two as escorts were taken into custody and moved to a shelter.

Police will request a remand extension for the suspects from the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court on Wednesday afternoon.
