U.S. removes Algeria from human trafficking ‘blacklist’

The United States has pointed to improvements made by Algeria, Egypt
and South Africa in terms of clamping down on human trafficking but issued a warning that technology was aggravating the global scourge. The United States removed Algeria from the blacklist, saying it was "makingsignificant efforts," pointing to a new anti-trafficking law and a tripling of prosecutions against alleged perpetrators.
   Egypt and South Africa were both taken off a watchlist, which carries a
threat to downgrade to Tier 3 without improvements.
   The report said Egypt more than doubled prosecutions of alleged traffickers
and prosecuted officials accused of complicity.

   South Africa was also credited with increasing prosecutions and with
setting up more shelters for victims.
