MONROVIA, Liberia, May 8 -- Sexual exploitation of young girls is rife in refugee camps and communities in war-ravaged Liberia and threatens the country's recovery after nearly two decades of conflict, according to a report released Monday.

Save the Children UK said an alarming number of girls as young as 8 were having sex with older men, including policemen, teachers, aid workers and U.N. peacekeepers, in exchange for money, food or favors such as a ride in a car or watching a film.
