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.

Disgusting.
