In Afghanistan today, in the midst of war and endemic poverty, an ancient tradition, banned when the Taliban were in power, has re-emerged across the country: Many hundreds of boys, often as young as ten, are being lured off the streets on the promise of a new life, many unaware that their real fate is to be used for entertainment and sex. An Afghan journalist, investigates this illegal practice, talking with the boys and their masters, and the Afghan authorities.
