(UNICEF) – An additional 163 children – including 5 girls – have been released by an armed group in the Central African Republic. The children were released by the anti-Balaka militia during a ceremony Friday in the town of Batangafo. Today’s handover, which was facilitated by UNICEF and the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), comes three months after 357 children were released following an agreement between the country’s 10 armed groups to release all children from their ranks.
