Tobacco companies 'use child labour'

Some of the world's biggest tobacco companies are buying their products from farms that employ child workers.

The BBC has found evidence of children working at every stage of the tobacco production process in Indonesia - the world's fifth-largest producer.

In a report released on Wednesday, Human Rights Watch claims that thousands of children are working in hazardous conditions in the tobacco industry.
