UNICEF fights for juvenile justice in AfghanistanListen /
There is an African proverb which says "When elephants fight, it is the grass that gets hurt."
In Afghanistan, when two families fight, young girls are often the victims.
To settle debts or disputes, or just to have a bit of peace, warring families will trade a daughter in a traditional practice known as "Baad."
The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) says the girls frequently end up with physical and psychological scars from being mistreated and abused by the receiving families.
