Tehran, Iran, Nov. 20 – A study last year revealed that fourteen percent of children in Iran work to provide income for their families. The following are photos of children forced to work taken by a state-run news agency.

Many of these children are forced into illegal employment such as smuggling, selling narcotics, and prostitution and have to forgo any opportunity of studying in school. Virtually all such children are facing malnutrition and are prone to diseases due to lack of hygiene.

The figures show that at present there are over a million Iranian children living in extreme poverty, with more than half a million children living under the $2 poverty line and another half a million living under the $1 poverty line.

Iranian authorities have announced that the number of street children throughout the country was in the hundreds of thousands.
