Child soldiers: Swat's child soliders put on display

The Pakistani army has rescued dozens of child soldiers who were abducted by the Taliban in the North-West Frontier Province.

But authorities warn the Taliban could be holding hundreds more and training them to become suicide bombers.

Some of those rescued were as young as nine-years-old.
