Two thousand babies  in prison with their mothers in Bolivia

As there is no alternative, there are about two thousand Bolivian children forced to live in prison with their mothers who are held there. Worried by the phenomenon, made even more dramatic because of mistreatment and violence that the young children suffer in prisons, the government is finding a remedy. The first step is to start the transfer of over 11 year olds elsewhere. The hope is to release the majority of children by the end of the year.
