(Reuters) – The Myanmar army discharged 42 children and young adults who had been recruited for soldiering and other duties on Sunday, part of a U.N. deal to end the use of child fighters, the United Nations’ children’s agency UNICEF said. Last June, Myanmar signed an agreement with the United Nations to end the recruitment and use of child soldiers after years of negotiations. However, rights groups have criticised Myanmar’s government for not moving quickly enough to free them and urged the army and rebel groups to stop recruiting young people.
