Children -- most of them girls -- now make up 27 percent of all human trafficking cases, marking an alarming increase in recent years, a UN agency said Wednesday.
The majority of trafficked persons are women, accounting for 55 to 60 per cent of victims detected globally. Girls under 18 made up two thirds of all trafficked children and now constitute 15-20 per cent of the total number of all detected victims, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) said in its annual report.
The study was based on official data supplied by 132 countries from 2007-2010.
