The Wider Image: Children toil in Myanmar
Kyaw Khine Soe, 16, rests on a dock after finishing his shift at San Pya fish market, in Yangon, Myanmar February 16, 2016. One in five children in Myanmar aged 10-17 go to work instead of school, according to figures from a census report on employment published last month, and the opening up of the economy since 2011 has triggered a spike in demand for labour. Many children work in fish farming and processing. At Yangon's San Pya fish market, the country's largest, girls and boys as young as nine clean and process fish and unload boats and trucks during 12-hour overnight shifts.
