(UNMISS) – Army officers serving in the troubled Yei region are being urged to respect the rights of children so that South Sudan can be removed from the international list of countries that recruit and use child soldiers. United Nations Mission in South Sudan child protection officer, Nora Pendaeli, said the Sudan People’s Liberation Army is listed in a UN report as a perpetrator of four of the six grave violations against children. This includes killing and maiming, recruitment and use of children in armed forces, rape as well as occupation of, and attacks on, schools, hospitals and places of worship.
