Sex-slave busts in Mexico City free scores of women held against their will.

Mexican authorities have rescued 74 women held prisoner and forced into sexual slavery by captors who made them work at a strip club and as prostitutes, prosecutors said.

Weekend raids in the nation’s capital freed 27 Mexicans and 19 foreigners at the Cadillac High Class strip club. A second bust, which occurred after a six-month investigation, liberated 28 women pushed into prostitution in hotels, parking lots and on the streets, officials reported Monday.

Federal police detained 40 people in the Cadillac crackdown and have so far charged 14 of them with human trafficking for sexual exploitation, according to Mexico City prosecutors. Table-top dances, say web posts from customers, go for 200 pesos, or about $16.

In the other raid, Mexico City District Attorney Miguel Mancerra told reporters that federales nabbed 26 suspects in and around a downtown hotel who allegedly ran four prostitution rings. Enforcers demanded the victims, one them a minor, hand over daily payments ranging from 3,000 to 4,000 pesos ( $230 to $384), amounts that constitute huge sums in a country ravaged by poverty.
