FBI busts child prostitution ring

WASHINGTON D.C. -- The FBI says it rescued more than 100 children by busting a major child sex trafficking ring.

Operation Cross Country Seven took place over a three-day period across dozens of cities.

It was the largest sweep to date and resulted in more than 150 arrests.

The rescued children were between the ages of 13 and 17-years-old.

"We do care. Our goal is to get these young girls into some form of treatment and to help them reshape their lives and reclaim their innocence to the extent they can," said FBI criminal investigator Ronald Hosko.

He said the operation included probes into websites where exploiters gather and cities hosting major sporting events like the Superbowl.
