(Reuters) – Myanmar’s military released 46 children and young people from service, the United Nations said in a statement on Monday, in its first discharge of underage recruits this year. The army has released 745 underage recruits since signing up to a joint action plan with the U.N. in June 2012 to end the use of children in the military. Human rights groups have long accused Myanmar’s military of abuses such as using child soldiers, forcibly recruiting conscripts and confiscating land.
