Amnesty International Seeks Intervention on Behalf of Child Soldiers

"The release, protection and re-integration of child soldiers into society should be the first priority of the Democratic Republic of Congo's new government, said Amnesty International on Wednesday. The London-based human rights group criticised the interim power-sharing administration and said its disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) programme was failing to meet traumatised youngsters' needs. It estimated that at least 11 000 children were either still with armed groups or unaccounted for more than two years after the DDR programme was launched to release and re-integrate child soldiers back into civilian life."
