In Afghanistan “Beardless Boys” sold as sex slaves

This is the world of the Bacha Bereesh, which means “beardless boys”. These children are groomed to become sex slaves.   It is not a new practice. In Afghanistan the Warlords often kept young boys as their sexual partners. But in modern Afghanistan the practice has evolved into a lucrative and expanding business.  In a country ravaged by war orphaned boys are being openly targeted by paedophiles.  Some families are so poor that they are willing to sell their sons into slavery.  Official reports now suggest thousands of children are at risk.
