30 rescued in Nepal
26 women and girls rescued at the border and four Nepali girls rescued in a labor trafficking raid.
One of the girls rescued at the border, age 18, was being trafficked by a ring of three people. All three have been arrested.
Two girls, both age 15, were being lured out of the country by a 41-year-old man promising high-paying jobs. He arranged their transportation and met them at the bus station. Our agents intercepted them at the border during a routine bus inspection and rescued the two young friends. Both were reunited with their families, who bravely pressed charges against the man caught trafficking the girls.
