Abducted children rescued in Sudan

Children fleeing captivity by a rebel group in South Sudan are helped by aid organisations to return home.

    A group of children captured by the Lord's Resistance Army in Sudan are returning home with the help of the International Committee of the Red Cross and the Sudanese Red Crescent.

    The children are being flown home to the Democratic Republic of Congo, but they leave behind those still waiting for their families to be found.

    Human rights workers say mass abductions are still happening, with hundreds of children forced to become soldiers or sex slaves.
