new U.N. report on trafficking
A new U.N. report paints a grim picture of the millions of people trafficked for sexual exploitation and forced labor: They come from at least 136 different nationalities, have been detected in 118 countries, and the majority of victims are women though the number of children is increasing.
The U.N. Office of Drugs and Crime, which launched the report Tuesday at U.N. headquarters, said the victims can be found in the world's restaurants, fisheries, brothels, farms and homes, among other places.
The report said trafficking for sexual exploitation accounts for 58 percent of all trafficking cases detected globally while the share of detected cases for forced labor has doubled over the past four years to 36 percent.
