Burma's military government has enacted a law to outlaw human trafficking, three months after the United States called it one of the world's worst offenders. State media announced the new law Wednesday.
The U.S. State Department listed Burma among the world's worst offenders in its annual report on human trafficking in June.
The report detailed Burma's failure to address forced labor and sexual exploitation -- particularly in trafficking Burma's ethnic minorities to various countries throughout Asia.
