Rights Groups, Advocates Condemn Use Of Child Soldiers In S. Sudan

New York Times: In South Sudan, a Ghost of Wars Past: Child Soldiers
“…The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) estimated last month that 9,000 children had been recruited into armed forces or other groups to fight in the South Sudan conflict. … A growing concern now is the impact of the conflict on the children of South Sudan. The recruitment or use of children as soldiers is just one violation of six that international child protection advocates have established to indicate that children are in harm’s way during an armed conflict…” (Kushkush, 6/7).
