Colombia Farc rebels hand over child soldiers

“The Colombian rebel group, the Farc, has handed over a first group of child soldiers as part of a peace accord signed with the government last month. The International Red Cross said the eight children would be given mental and physical examinations before being taken to temporary reception centres. They said the ultimate aim was to try to return the young people to their families. The Farc says it has 21 soldiers under 15 years of age. The Colombian defence ministry has put the figure for those under 18 far higher.”
