Four men in French Polynesia have been given jail terms of up to 18 months for having sex with underage prostitutes.

The youngest girl was a homeless 12 year-old.

Media in Tahiti say the unnamed men include a retired pharmacist, a businessman and a public servant.

The reports say police opened investigations after receiving an anonymous letter last year and after the wife of one of the men contacted them.
