Sri Lanka progresses to end child marriages: UN

While Sri Lanka has made substantial progress in addressing child marriage and teenage pregnancy, some girls in the south Asian nation are still being deprived of a carefree childhood and the opportunity to realise their full potential, UN agencies said on Wednesday.

In a letter to Sri Lanka’s Minister of Women and Child Affairs Chandrani Bandara on the occasion of the International Day of the Girl Child, the UN Children’s Fund (Unicef) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNPF) called on Colombo to continue actions to address this issue, Xinhua news agency reported.

A major operation against distributors of child sexual abuse images online has resulted in the arrests of 75 suspects across 28 European countries.

Code-named "Operation Daylight", the investigation has resulted in 207 criminal cases, Europe's policing agency Europol said on Tuesday.

"We know that individuals are abusing online platforms and networks to distribute child sexual abuse material and we are determined to target them and bring them to justice," Steven Wilson, head of Europol's European Cybercrime Center, said in a statement.
