Militants in Pakistan “often sexually and physically abuse” the children they kidnap or fraudulently take away for spying or suicide bombing purposes, a US State Department report has said.

The 2011 Trafficking in Persons Report says that in Pakistan, “non-state militant groups kidnap children or coerce parents with fraudulent promises into giving away children as young as 12 to spy, fight, or die as suicide bombers in Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
