Several child soldiers have been reported killed by Colombian forces when they carried out an air strike at a rebel camp earlier this month. The youngest was a girl who was only nine years old. (Subscribe: https://bit.ly/C4_News_Subscribe)

The country’s defense minister tried to justify the attack by calling children “war machines” and is now facing calls for resignation.

And now, as we know, because of the pandemic, with so many children out of school, recruitment has gone up. Follow us on Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/Channel4News
