Two Egyptians have been jailed by a US court after pleading guilty to enslaving a 10-year-old Egyptian girl at their south California home

BBC News:

Abdel Nasser Ibrahim was given three years in prison while his ex-wife, Amal Motelib, received a 22-month sentence.

They were also ordered to pay more than $76,000 (£40,500) to the girl for two years of forced labour during which she served the couple's family of seven.

She worked 16-hour days and was denied access to education, prosecutors said.

Ibrahim and Motelib will be deported after serving their sentences, officials said.
