Aid workers 'traded wheat, medicines and oil for sex with girls as young as 13 and made them pose naked for pictures' in west Africa scandal

Aid workers traded wheat and life-saving medicines for sex with children in crisis zones, it has emerged.

Humanitarians traded 'oil, bulgur wheat, tarpaulin or plastic sheeting, medicines, transport, ration cards, loans, education courses and skills training' with girls aged 13 to 18.

The report, written in 2001, shows officials knew of the alleged abuse in Africa a decade before the Oxfam sex scandal, where chiefs were accused of concealing findings of an inquiry into claims staff paid for prostitutes in disaster-struck Haiti in 2011.

Underage girls were also asked to pose naked for pictures and rooms were rented for sex, the report by Save the Children and the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees (UNHCR) reveals.
