The FBI has shut down a website advertising children for prostitution.

Federal agents closed a website called myredbook on Wednesday during a raid in San Francisco. Law enforcement sources say that 2 people have been arrested on suspicion they were operating the website.

The raid stems from a national child sex trafficking crackdown. The FBI rescued 168 children, including a 16-year-old Lowcountry girl and made 5 arrests in Charleston.
