Ex-child soldier tells UN: End recruitment of kids

Published: 03.07.14, 18:29 / Israel News

The Security Council is condemning the recruitment of child soldiers into military forces, guerrilla movements and Islamic militias around the world and is demanding an end to attacks on schools and hospitals in conflict zones. The council unanimously adopted a resolution with those demands Friday.


It heard testimony from a former child soldier from Sierra Leone. In 2001, when he was 14, Alhaji Babah Sawaneh became the first ex-child soldier to speak before the council, and he spoke again Friday as a campaigner against the practice. (AP)
