NAIROBI (AFP) - Children in drought-struck Somalia are suffering from a range of war crimes including systematic recruitment by militants insurgents, Amnesty International said on Wednesday. The London-based rights group urged international action to protect the rights of children in war-torn Somalia, where tens of thousands are fleeing extreme drought. Children are being recruited as child soldiers, denied access to education and killed or injured in indiscriminate attacks, Amnesty said in a report. Militant extremists, including Shebab rebels who pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda last year, control swathes of southern Somalia and parts of its capital. As a child in Somalia, you risk death all the time, said Michelle Kagari, Amnestys deputy director for Africa. Children are punished by Shebab if they are caught listening to music or even for just wearing the wrong clothes, Kagari added. However, Amnesty also noted that Somalias transitional govt is on a UN list of shame for recruiting, using, killing and maiming children in armed conflict.
