Authorities from all around the country have broken up a large child sex slave ring, saving dozens of children who would've been forced into prostitution.
FOX News Radio's Steve Taylor reports from Washington:
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.
