Feds Investigate Saudi Diplomat for Human Trafficking

Two potential victims taken from Virginia home


Federal authorities are investigating a potential case of human trafficking at the suburban Washington home of a Saudi diplomat, officials said Wednesday.

Authorities were called Tuesday afternoon to an upscale neighborhood in McLean, Virginia, where they "removed two potential trafficking victims," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brandon Montgomery told CNN.

A State Department official said the McLean house is the home of the Saudi military attaché.

The case is under investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, a unit within ICE.
