British tabloid: Shocking revelation on the 10th anniversary of the war on Afghanistan

excerpt from: Girl, eight, sold to Afghan police officer as his bride
by Robert Fox, London Evening Standard, 6 October 2011
Ten years after British forces entered the war-ravaged country, the [London Evening] Standard has uncovered shocking evidence of an eight-year-old girl who was married off to a policeman for cash. She was sold to the officer, in his twenties, in clear breach of laws introduced two years ago to protect women.
She was then the subject of a remarkable battle that symbolises the plight of girls in Afghanistan. Her story vividly highlights the failure to bring about social reforms in the stricken nation, despite the long presence of British forces.
