Myanmar frees scores of child soldiers from armed forces

“Myanmar’s army has freed 96 children and young people from its armed forces, the United Nations said Saturday, hailing a ‘historic step’ towards ending the use of child soldiers in the formerly junta-run nation. The move was the largest single release of child recruits since Myanmar’s new reformist government and its ‘tatmadaw’ army signed a June 2012 pact with the UN on the issue.”
