A COUPLE was arrested in Malaga last week for trying to smuggle a 13-year-old girl into Spain inside a suitcase.
The Moroccan man and Spanish woman were stopped by police officials while entering the country from Melilla with a large, unusually heavy suitcase in their car.
Upon opening the suitcase, the officers found the girl, distressed and disoriented.
She is not a family member of either the man or the woman.
She was reportedly treated by Red Cross officials at the port before being admitted to a hospital.
