From today's news: soccer, prositution, Sweden

From a Deutsche Welle report:
Swedish Call to Boycott World Cup Over Forced Prostitution

Sweden's soccer team should boycott the 2006 World Cup in Germany to protest against a feared rise in forced prostitution, the Swedish ombudsman for gender equality said Monday.
"We should distance ourselves and say that we will not accept such a situation and for that reason we do not want to participate," the ombudsman, Claes Borgstr?m, told Swedish Radio. "It's a good opportunity to do something effective ... targeting modern-day slavery."
