HAMBURG - Germany is drafting a handbook for women travellers from eastern Europe, showing them how to escape if they are tricked into prostitution during working stays in Germany, the news magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday.

Suggesting ways to escape the clutches of human traffickers, the brief 'travel guide' advises women to leave a photocopy of their passport back home before travelling, as pimps often confiscate IDs.

Regular dates to phone home should be agreed with family, according to the brochure, which is being drawn up by the Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ), a German development aid agency.

In the report, released two days before the magazine hits the streets, Der Spiegel said it was part of a project in Ukraine to prevent human trafficking by public education.
