Iran: 21% street children experienced sexual relations

“According to a research conducted in Tehran, 21% of street children have experienced sexual relations,” said Ebrahim Ghafari, the social deputy of the Iranian regime’s Welfare Organization.

It is clear that among all cases, homeless girls are the most vulnerable. In June of this year “Ghanoon” daily published a report on the gang rape of an 11-year-old girl by six men in Iran.

The average age of sexual relations in the country is 12.5 for girls and 13.7 for boys.

Minu Mohrez, head of the Aids Research Center said the highest rise in AIDS cases is amongst children working in the streets who are inflicted as a result of rape.
