The Colombian capital Bogota still serves as a destination city for human trafficking, newspaper El Tiempo reported Wednesday based on a study by the U.N.
According to the newspaper, most of the trafficking took the form of forced prostitution, followed by forced marriage and labor.
Bogota was also listed as a destination city for the sexual exploitation of children.
Many of the children come from other Colombian departments such as Amazonas, Atlantico, or the Easter Plains, although the report did note that some Bogota children are sent outside of the city for sexual exploitation.
The report added that women who are forced into the sex trade tend to come from the lowest Colombian social classes, although occasionally upper class women can be lured in with the promise of student scholarships or offers to become models.
