FBI rescues 52 kids from prostitution (AFP) WASHINGTON — US
authorities rescued 52 children, including one as young as 10, from
prostitution rings and arrested nearly 700 people during a nationwide
sting operation over the weekend, the FBI said Monday.
The three-day push in 36 US cities "led to the recovery of 52 children
who were being victimized through prostitution" and the arrest of
close to 700 others, "including 60 pimps, on state and local charges,"
the Federal Bureau of Investigation said.
"Child prostitution continues to be a significant problem in our
country, as evidenced by the number of children rescued through the
continued efforts of our crimes-against-children task forces," said
Kevin Perkins, assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Investigative
Division.
The roundup, which officials said took place over the previous 72
hours, was part of a larger FBI program called "Innocence Lost," whose
task forces have removed nearly 900 children from the streets since
2003, convicted 510 people and seized 3.1 million dollars in assets,
the FBI said.
