Some 16,000 children in Mexico are sexually exploited through networks involving military, police, government and  business officials and foreigners, UNICEF reports, revealing that child trafficking yields $7 billion in profits annually. The “weakness of legal controls” and poverty have made Mexico a paradise of prostitution and child pornography, according to a recent UNICEF report produced in collaboration with two local organisations.

“The use of children [in] pornographic material is frequent,” report says. The border between the United States and   Mexico is one of the principal centres of child sex tourism, it adds.
