The World of Child Soldiers

Hosted by

There are more 250,000 child soldiers around the world and they've fought in half of the globe's 55 ongoing, or just finished, wars. What impact will legal efforts have on punishing those who recruit children for killing? How does rehabilitation help children who leave the front lines? We hear from a former girl soldier, who was abducted and forced to fight in northern Uganda. Also, a shake-up at the Joint Chiefs and, on Reporter’s Notebook, segregated at Starbucks and everywhere else, too.  A female reporter shares her experience in Saudi Arabia.  Sara Terry guest hosts.
