Video of child bride in Lebanon shines spotlight on 37,000 child marriages every day

Some reacted with anger and confusion, while others looked on approvingly, even offering their congratulations.

A 12-year-old girl, in a white wedding dress and veil, stands beside a man who looks like her grandfather. They are getting their wedding pictures taken by the sea.

Passers-by question him and the photographer, one accusing the groom of being a “criminal”.

The bride and groom are actors, hired by the KAFA – “enough” in Arabic – Violence & Exploitation campaign in Lebanon.
