U.N. experts rap U.S. “cruelty” to child prisoners
By Robert Evans
GENEVA, June 6 – United Nations experts on child rights criticised the United States on Friday over detention of juveniles at Guantanamo, in Afghanistan and Iraq, and voiced concern that some may have suffered cruel treatment.
They also called for an end to recruitment of under-18s into the U.S. armed forces and for a halt to enlistment campaigns aimed specifically at young people from minority groups and poor or single-parent families.
The strictures were issued in a report from the 18-member Committee on the Rights of the Child, which monitors performance under U.N. pacts, including two signed by Washington on children and armed conflict and on child prostitution.
On under-18s — defined by the U.N. as children — held in U.S.-run prisons in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Committee said it was “concerned over reports indicating the use of cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment.”
