9 women rescued from fake reality show contest

TURKISH military police say they raided an Istanbul villa and rescued nine women who were tricked into thinking they were reality show contestants.

They said today that the women were held captive for two months. The raid occurred on Monday.

Turkish news reports say the nine women - including a 15-year-old - were made to believe they were being filmed for a Big Brother-style television show. Instead, captors sold their images on the Internet.

They were rescued after some family members complained to police that they were being prevented from contacting the women.
