Save the Children report claims young girls exposed to risks of abuse and exploitation
Migrant children are prostituting themselves in order to get a safe passage into France from the Italian border, according to a report from Save the Children Italy. The minors, mostly from sub-Saharan Africa, are selling sex if they are unable to pay the €50-€150 asked by drivers in exchange for a lift across the border.
The children are also being offered food or shelter in return for sex. The charity says it has evidence of many cases, particularly since the beginning of this year.
