Helsinki Police fined six people during a raid on street prostitution in the capital over the weekend. Both sellers and buyers were fine.

A foreign person will be removed from the country because the person had already been banned from entering a Schengen country, according to Finnish news agency Yle.

Two more foreigners were ordered to report to the police, which will assess the need and begin the process of removing such people from the country.
