Factoid: Children in the Cambodian sex trade has increased dramatically over the past 20 years. This has been linked to the social effects of the Khmer Rouge war, occupation of outside forces, extreme poverty and the growth in sex tourism.
In 2007 the average age of trafficked girls was 19, with 14% being 15 years of age or younger.
