"A U.S.-based human rights group is accusing the Philippine army of fabricating stories that some children it has taken into custody are communist 'child warriors.' The military says 215 New People's Army child soldiers have surrendered, 121 have been captured and 12 have been killed between January 1999 and January this year." (10/11/11)
