Trocaire helping Ugandan children of conflict

Over more than 20 years the Lord's Resistance Army kidnapped thousands of children forcing them to carry out terrible atrocities during Uganda's civil war.

Irish charity Trocaire is helping former child soldiers to grow crops, earn a living, and continue their education.

BBC Newsline reporter Julian Fowler has been speaking to victims of the violence - including one of those child soldiers.
