Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers: Global Report 2004
“The Batticaloa people are giving their children; you must give your money,” LTTE combatant to Sri Lankan expatriates in Switzerland.
Children around the world are being used as spies and couriers in conflict zones, being kidnapped or coerced into militias and being sold by their parents into wars. The Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers releases a report every three years that breaks down, country-by-country, the status of the use of children in conflict.
