Bangladeshi children sold for sex

Girls as young as 12 being forced to take steroids to fatten them up for customers.



    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.

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports.
