Refugee teenagers' exploitation discovered in Rome

Exploited, hungry, alone. Some of the thousands of refugees who have arrived in Italy in the past years have been forced to turn to prostitution and crime to survive. Most of these people are underage and on their own, without skills or understanding of the language to adjust to life in Italy. Their families are still back in their home country and have payed thousands of dollars to smugglers to get their kids across Europe, money that these kids now have to pay back. Al-Jazeera's Barnaby Phillips, together with a Raw-News team, met some of these teenagers at Rome's main train station, Termini.
