UNHCR reports on child marriage in the Central African Republic
A high incidence of underage marriage and the widespread use of child labour are occurring in the Central African Republic, a landlocked country in central Africa, says the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.
Displaced civilians in northern Central African Republic are the ones most affected. Fatoumata Lejeune-Kabba, author of a report on the subject, said UNHCR and the Danish Refugee Council surveyed 300 families from a population of 17 thousand near the town of Ndele between May and September 2011.
