Liveria sex for aid "widespread"

Young girls in Liberia are still being sexually
exploited by aid workers and peacekeepers despite pledges to stamp out
such abuse, Save the Children says.

Girls as young as eight are being forced to have sex in
exchange for food by workers for local and international agencies,
according to its report.

The agency says such abuse is becoming more common as people displaced by the civil war return to their villages.
