    Miss Peru recented visited the African nation of Gabon, and accused the country's president of trying to "proposition her" when she visited his palace. She fled his palace, and upon her return to Peru, the details of the trip become stories of "white slavery". This incident has become a major international rift between the two countries, and it threatens diplomatic relations between the two (Gabon has been supplying money & oil to Peru for years). Here are links to two seperate articles, both give very different details to the story:

    How did an alleged assault become "white slavery?"

    Thanks for sharing Brother Pan.
