Opium gangs in Afghanistan are using the sons and daughters of farmers as collateral for unpaid debts - with horrendous consequences for those who refuse.

A documentary has exposed the stomach-churning reality facing the war-torn nation's farmers, who borrow money from drug lords to set up cultivation of opium, used to make heroin, but are left destitute when NATO-backed Afghan forces destroy their crops.

The drug lords then take their children, including girls as young as 10, to places like Pakistan and Iran to sell them into the sex trade or use them as drug mules.
