An Egyptian woman has brought charges against her husband, accusing
An Egyptian woman has brought charges against her husband, accusing him of drugging her and selling one of her kidneys on the black market, the Al-Wafd newspaper said on Monday.

Warda Mohammed el-Banna of the Nile Delta town of Menufiya told investigators that her husband had offered to take her on his motorcycle to visit his relatives, giving her a glass of drugged orange juice before the trip. During the journey, she said, she fell asleep and woke up in a private hospital in Cairo.

Her husband, Saad Helmi, explained the wound in her side by saying that she had been operated on after being severely injured in a motorcycle accident.

A few days after being dismissed from hospital, however, the woman began feeling weak, and a medical examination revealed that one of her kidneys was missing. Her husband is due to go on trial soon for the 'robbery'.

Kidneys go for around for 15,000 Egyptian pounds ($2,730) on the local human organ black market.

In February 2007 the Daily Times of Pakistan reported that a man in the city of Multan in the country's Punjab province had sold his wife's kidney in order to purchase a tractor.
