State Department called human trafficking a 'serious problem' in US
Katherine Bacher at 12:00 AM ET

On June 14, 2010, the US State Department released an annual report [PDF] that detailed human trafficking conditions around the world. Specifically, the report described the US as still having a "serious problem" with the issue. The State Department also listed countries in noncompliance with the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, including Cuba, North Korea, Iran and Saudi Arabia — as well as countries that were attempting to comply with the Act. Prior to the report's release, the US and the European Union (EU) signed an international criminal treaty addressing the trafficking of humans and illegal drugs in October 2009.
