New phase in federal effort to combat human trafficking

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Justice Department is announcing a new phase in efforts to combat human trafficking.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch says government officials are looking for more cities to participate in the next phase of a program aimed at streamlining trafficking investigations and prosecutions.

The idea is to build on an initiative from 2011 that officials say has resulted in more trafficking cases and convictions.

Lynch describes the results of the program so far, as "extraordinary."
