A Former Child Soldier Is Released From the Army

A former child soldier is released in Yambio, South Sudan as part of a joint initiative to return children to their families. About 900 children were released, but it is estimated that over 19,000 children have been recruited into the armed forces during South Sudan's brutal civil war that started in 2013.
