Looks like children are being recruited for war.


The rebel Liberation Tigers of Tamil
Eelam (LTTE, or Tamil Tigers) are recruiting children affected by the
tsunami for use as soldiers, Human Rights Watch said today.

Human Rights Watch said that the Tamil Tigers, who were already
recruiting large numbers of child soldiers, now may seek to replace
forces lost to the tsunami with child recruits.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) reported Thursday on
three cases of children recruited from camps for tsunami survivors in
Batticaloa and Ampara, on Sri Lanka's eastern coast. Human Rights
Watch has received additional information on LTTE recruitment of
children in Trincomalee and Jaffna.
