PRAGUE, May 31 (Xinhua) -- A rising number of child sex abuse cases was reported in the Czech Republic in 2012 with the age of victims falling, according to Prague children's crisis center.

A quarter of sex abuse victims were children who had not been to school yet, Jakub Boucek from the centre said.

In 2012, the Prague centre received 293 victims who were mistreated, abused or faced hard or threatening conditions. He said the affected children often lived in non-functioning families where parents fail to protect them.

Most victims of sexual abuse were boys aged three to six and girls aged six to nine. There were even 15 victims under three years of age. Children are mostly abused by relatives and friends, not by strangers.

The center helped 157 child victims of sexual abuse in 2012, compared to 121 in 2011.
