Long Abstract: United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has shown growing concern and is working to help develop action taken against child trafficking in Yemen. 'Trafficking is the worst form of child labor in Yemen,' Thaira Shalan, Child Protection Officer at UNICEF based in Yemen, told Yemen Times. 'It is horrendous'. Children handed over by their families to traffic agents are being smuggled into Saudi Arabia and are used for begging, theft or prostitution. UNICEF has gathered information that shows many of the children who are victims of trafficking have been abused.
