You want China chicken, Kazakh chicken, Russia chicken. Why not try Uganda chicken? We have every kind of chicken.

A report released last week said that more than 600 Ugandan girls are currently trapped in Malaysian prostitution rings. Uganda's honorary consul in Kuala Lumpur said in the report that at least three Ugandans have been killed there in the last two years.

"I need to stop this, and it has to stop at the source," Hajah Noraihan, Uganda's top diplomat in Malaysia, said during a trip to Uganda last week. "The girls think there are green pastures (in Malaysia), but it is not a picnic."

A Malaysian Foreign Ministry official said the government is aware of the issue with Ugandan women, but declined to elaborate. Other officials familiar with the matter could not immediately be reached.
