This week, President Obama announced new initiatives to combat human trafficking, including an executive order that requires closer tracking of U.S. Government contractors around the world.

The goal is to ensure they are not involved in human trafficking, especially the sex trafficking of children.

As part of WABE’s continuing coverage of the fight against child sex trafficking, WABE’s Denis O’Hayer spoke with Atlanta U.S. Attorney Sally Yates about the president’s executive order, and about some recent indictments in the metro Atlanta area.
