    The prostitutes of Bangladesh as young as 12 are sold for sex for just $1 a customer.

    They are sold into a life of prostitution by their families - some for as little as $200.

    A new study by the charity Action Aid has found up to 90 per cent of them are using steroids to fatten themselves up to satisfy their customers.
