Nepal child soldiers to leave camps

Thousands who fought for Maoists to enter civilian life after decade-long conflict.

    As teenagers, they were recruited to fight in a civil war, often against their will.

    Now, thousands of former child soldiers in Nepal will be discharged from UN-monitored detention camps.

    The initial release is the first which will ultimately see thousands of former Maoist fighters reintegrate into civil society - marking a crucial chapter in the country's peace process.

    Gerald Tan reports.
