Sri Lanka has rehabilitated nearly 600 child soldiers recruited by LTTE within one year.

Addressing the meeting on the rights of the child at the 19th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Sri Lanka highlighted the enormous challenge it faced to rehabilitate and reintegrate 595 LTTE child soldiers who were in the care of the government after the end of the conflict in May 2009.
