CAR child soldiers face death threats

Central African Republic troops threaten to kill children currently under protection of the UN children's agency.

    In the Central African Republic, 66 former child soldiers face the threat of death even though they are in the care of the United Nations' children's agency.

    UNICEF took the children under its protection last month at the start of the rebellion so they would not be re-recruited.

    But some government troops have threatened to kill them.
