Former Ugandan child soldier returns home

Kidnapped at the age of 10 in 2001, Dennis Ocan was forced to join the LRA and only managed to escape 13 years later.

    When Dennis Ocan was 10, he was kidnapped and forced to serve as a child soldier for the Lord's Resistance Army until he escaped 13 years later.

    Now after weeks at a rehabilitation centre for former fighters, he has finally returned home.

    While hundreds of child soldiers have been through the centre thousands remain missing.
