Eleven-year-old Yahya's parents sold him to people-smugglers in Afghanistan for around $10,000. His captors then turned him over to the Taliban, who trained him to be a suicide bomber. Yahya had the courage to escape, but there are many other children like him who fall into traffickers' clutches. (RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan)
