Two sisters, one 5 years old and the other 3 months old, were rescued in Denver by undercover agents during this year's FBI-led sting operation against sex traffickers, officials said.

The alleged trafficker, a friend of the children's family, made a deal to sell them for sex for $600, the FBI said. The friend communicated with an undercover agent, the FBI said in announcing details of Operation Cross Country XI.

While this alleged crime alone is disturbing, 82 other juveniles were rescued during last week's nationwide sweep. Some 120 people were arrested.

Despite the arrest numbers, the work is far from over.
