BIRMINGHAM , AL (WAFF) -

Three Alabama juveniles were recovered in a nation-wide sex trafficking sting.

The FBI announced Monday that 105 children involved in sex trafficking were recovered in 76 U.S. cities.

In Birmingham, three juveniles ranging in age from 13 to 17 were rescued. The 13-year-old is the youngest juvenile involved, according to an FBI spokesman.

Also in Birmingham, two pimps were arrested. No further information about them was available. The 72-hour operation netted 150 pimps across the U.S.

The effort was done as part of the Innocence Lost initiative. It has resulted in more than 2,700 children recovered from trafficking and 1,300-plus pimps and madams arrested since its inception.
