Militias Recruiting Child Soldiers in CAR

Kids fighting for both rebel and pro-government forces


(CNN) — Opposition and pro-government militias are recruiting child soldiers as the Central African Republic faces a rebellion in the north, the United Nations warned.

Rebels demanding the resignation of President Francois Bozize have seized various towns and threatened to head to the capital of Bangui.

As the government scrambles to quash the rebellion, alarm is growing as children are separated from their relatives.
