Nepal: Child Soldiers

Nepal Monitor on the plight of child soldiers. “Even as the government was saying that the peace process was holding and the law and order situation had improved, the last time the Carter Center painted a rather gloomy picture of Nepal, saying that there was “unacceptable levels of continued fear, intimidation and physical violence.” The latest document (actually a letter to the new Minister of Women, Children and Social Welfare, Khadga Bahadur Bishwakarma, who is also a Maoist minister) from the New York-based Human Rights Watch says the issue of child soldiers remains unresolved.”
