A six-year-old girl has been forced to marry a 55-year-old man after her father allegedly sold her in exchange for a goat in Afghanistan.

According to the father, who also allegedly received rice, tea, sugar and cooking oil for his daughter, he and his family were desperate for food and by selling his daughter he had one less mouth to feed.

He also insisted that the new husband of the girl, named only as Gharibgol, had sworn not to have sex with her until she turned 18.

After the wedding, Abdolkarim reportedly took the girl to a relative's house in Firozkoh, in Ghor province, pretending she was his daughter.

But the concerned relative raised the alarm, insisting Abdolkarim was 'undressing her at night'.

According to The Observers, Abdolkarim told his relative: 'No [she's not my daughter], she's my wife, her father gave her to me.'

Both the man, Seyed Abdolkarim, and the girl's father have been arrested.
