    Thousands of children as young as four are being forced to work in brick factories in Afghanistan.

    Some of them work up to 12 hours a day, to help pay off debts owed by their families.

    Al Jazeera' s Teresa Bo went to the town of Sokhrod to meet some of the children, who are losing their childhood to pay off their families' debts.
