The Sofia Police arrested Friday 21 prostitutes at the Macedonia Square in downtown Sofia including seven transsexuals.

Four of the detained persons are prohibited from leaving the country because they had been arresting as prostitutes abroad, or have committed criminal offences.

Six of those arrested are from Sofia, and the rest are from Pleven, Vratza, Lom, Nikopol, Omurtag, Berkovitsa, Novi Pazar. The detainees were freed after they were interrogated.

A number of the residents of Sofia's downtown quarters have complained repeatedly about the impudence of the transsexual prostitutes there offering their services literally on the pavement before their windows.
