NPA minors surrender

Two child warriors of the New People’s Army (NPA) surrendered yesterday.

The two minors, aged 16 and 13 years old, surrendered to the 33rd Infantry Battalion in Barangay Midtungok, SNA, Sultan Kudarat.

The NPA recruited them in Datu Wasay, Kalamansig to be trained as medics.

Using child warriors is against international laws and is considered child abuse under Philippine law.
