GEORGIA, USA (AP) — The FBI says 169 people were arrested as a result of an 11-day effort targeting human trafficking in the lead-up to the Super Bowl in Atlanta.

The FBI said in a news release yesterday that the operation ran from January 23 through February 2. The FBI says it aimed to raise awareness by taking proactive steps to address the threat of sex trafficking before and during the Super Bowl.

The FBI says the arrests included 26 alleged traffickers and 34 people accused of trying to have sex with minors. The agency says nine juvenile sex-trafficking victims were recovered, and nine adult human trafficking victims were identified.

The FBI collaborated with more than two dozen local, state and federal law enforcement agencies and prosecutors’ offices, as well as non-government organisations.
