The FBI and local police across the country say they have rescued 79 minors being held as sex slaves.  The youngsters – 77 girls and two boys – were recovered late last week in a sweep through 57 cities.  The kids were kept in bondage through violence that the FBI’s Kevin Perkins calls “horrifying.”

(Perkins) “When you talk about prostitution in general, that’s a violent crime.  But when you throw in minors, that just put it into a whole new realm.”

The FBI says the kids were as young as 13.  More than 100 alleged pimps were arrested.
