The UN estimates that the number of child soldiers in the Central African Republic has almost doubled in the last year.

It says more than 150 children have been released, but that there are still about 3,500 child soldiers in the country.

Poverty, displacement and an increase in armed groups mean children are more vulnerable to recruitment.

Al Jazeera's Nazanine Moshiri reports from the capital, Bangui.


Two and a half minute video segment at link.

Disgusting.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
