Bulletin year 2008 number 6

Kathmandu, 27 August 2008 - Children in South Asia are being trafficked for many forms of exploitation - for sexual exploitation, labour, begging, early marriage, forced military recruitment, to work on camel farms, and for several other harmful purposes. This grave violation of children's rights is occurring in the region and throughout the world, but precise and reliable numbers are lacking.
