Child labour in Bangladesh's cheap cigarette factories

Some of the children filmed secretly making cheap hand-rolled cigarettes, popularly known as bidis, for $1 a day look barely 10 years old.


    Young children, some barely school age, are being paid a dollar a day to make cigarettes in Bangladesh.

    That is according to human rights groups who have been urging the government to do more to enforce child labour laws.

    But they admit that is difficult, as the children's families rely on the money they earn.
