End of innocence: Photos of child sexual abuse in South Africa

Rape is notoriously prevalent in South Africa, but the greatest increase in sexual crimes there has been against infants and children under the age of seven.

Photographer Mariella Furrer has been documenting this shocking story for over a decade, and has compiled her powerful photographs into a new book, "My Piece of Sky."

Furrer spoke with CNN's Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday about her work; their conversation will be online on Wednesday.

Click here to see Furrer's photos in large format.

    South Africa is truly a sick society. However it has not been PC to point this out. When hundreds of thousands of South Africans died from AIDs due to governmental ignorance the western press was mainly silent. Hats off to Amanapour.

    some plan to generate a full awareness of the issues for the general population so they can act in a unified manner in addressing this issue...breaking of the silence...followed by using offenders as examples with stern prison terms and public identification.without a unified effort little progress can be made and this requires educating the public.a plan must be created by a group of individuals on how to implament a plan of action that will move in a progressive manner with directed intent and clear objectives.communication is the foundation for the whole construction..based on facts.....
