Taliban Child Fighters

Posted on 19th Jul, 2013

After more than one decade of fighting against NATO and the Afghan Government, the Taliban still remain a powerful enemy of the Afghan Government and NATO.  Taliban Child fighters, a breathtaking documentary film (scheduled for broadcast on Channel 4 at 8:00pm on Monday, July 22, 2013) tells the story of several children and shows their lives behind the bars following their arrests either on the spot fighting for the Taliban, or on accusation of affiliation with the insurgents.

The documentary investigates how they have been brainwashed, forced, abused and encouraged by the Taliban to continue their cause and to fight for them.
