Facebook has been criticised for allowing a 16-year-old child bride in South Sudan to be auctioned off to the highest bidder on its platform.
Child marriage is illegal in South Sudan but remains widespread.
Her father received 500 cows, two luxury cars, two bikes, a boat, some mobile phones and $13,800 in exchange for his daughter.
It is the largest dowry ever paid in the civil war-torn country, according to the Government.
Five men bid on the girl, including high-ranking South Sudanese government officials, according to children's rights organisation Plan International.
George Otim, country director of Plan International South Sudan, likened the auction to slave markets and slammed Facebook for allowing it to take place on the company's platform.
While South Sudan's Government condemns the practice of child marriage, it says it cannot regulate communities' cultural norms, especially in remote areas. »
