Rising use of Somali child soldiers

Anti-government fighters using children in their war against government in Mogadishu.

    The use of child soldiers in Somalia is on the rise as fighting in the country continues to worsen.

    While international pressure has forced the interim government to abandon the use of child soldiers, the challenge is to stop the anti-government fighters from exploiting them.
