    MOSCOW, December 18 (RIA Novosti) - Police in Yakutia, northeast Siberia, have freed a 15-year-old girl who had been sold by her older sister for 10,000 rubles ($370) to work as a sex slave, a Russian newspaper reported.

    Komsomolskaya Pravda said Sveta, from Russia's Far Eastern Primorye Territory, was found by police in Yakutsk after she had been held in an apartment 10 days.

    Sveta was sold to a sex trafficker who drugged her and drove her to Yakutsk. She later found out that her sister Anya, who had previously worked as a prostitute, had sold her to buy clothes.

    The girl said the kidnapper - named by the paper as Kirill Porubin - had told her she would have to work for one year to pay off the 10,000-ruble 'debt'.
