Three teenagers

who attended a conference against child sexual abuse in Brazil have

third Unicef-sponsored World Congress Against Sexual Exploitation of

Children and Adolescents, in Rio de Janeiro in November. "I want to

commit myself to fighting against the sexual exploitation of children

in Cambodia. Even though we are young children, we still know our

rights," Kol Kakda said.
