Child soldier, Jaffna
A 12 year old former child soldier on the Jaffna peninsula, Sri Lanka. He was recruited by the LTTE, (The Tamil Tigers), to fight and then rescued by UNICEF and placed in a rehabilitation camp inside rebel controlled territory, where this photo was taken. He hopes to return to his family if they still exist and can be found. This photo was taken during the ceasefire which has recently ended. Once he leaves the camp UNICEF cannot guarantee that he will not be 'recruited' again. His face is hidden at UNICEF's insistence. Picture taken 2005, Jaffna, Sri Lanka.
