BAFATA REGION, Guinea-Bissau, 26 March, 2008 -- At a remote police station in eastern Guinea-Bissau, Amandou Jau, 12, waited patiently to be reunited with his father. Amandou had been rescued from the clutches of a child trafficker who had sought to smuggle him across the border into Senegal.

Sadly, this is a not uncommon story in a region where young boys are regularly abducted.

UNICEF is working with its partner, the non-governmental organization SOS Talibé, to inform parents about the realities of child-trafficking in Senegal. Estimates suggest that as many as 100,000 children are prisoners of the streets there, and that most originated from Guinea-Bissau.
