Tackling underage marriage in Morocco
Date created : Latest update :
In Morocco, child marriages have been banned since 2004. But due to a legal loophole, officials say tens of thousands of girls are married every year before the age of 18. The trend is particularly worrying in rural areas, where some girls are married off as young as 12 or 13. FRANCE 24's team travelled to some of Morocco's most remote villages to meet these young teens.
