Recruitment and use of child soldiers violates children's rights and is a war crime, if the children are under 15. In this document Amnesty International asks that letters be written to the Authorities in Côte D'Ivoire with recommendations which include that they ensure that all armed forces immediately demobilize children under the age of 18 from their ranks and stop further recruitment of children, and engage in the demobilisation of child soldiers, facilitating their reintegration into society.
