A hospitable Sheraton Hotel with the rooms prices starting from $450 a night, is a perfect place for diplomats and government leaders to gather in order to seek ways of helping their country.
Juba — At least five Ugandan children, who were victims of human trafficking in South Sudan, have been returned to their country, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) said.
The children, aged between 10 and 16, were reportedly forced to sell goods on the streets of the South Sudanese capital, Juba, working for long hours under horrible conditions.
More than 70 former child soldiers, which included 24 girls, were recently registered in South Darfur for rehabilitation and reintegration. The former members of the Sudan Liberation Army / Historical Leadership (SLA/HL) were released in to the communities in 2011.

JUBA, Oct 31 (Reuters) - The United States is urging Sudanese rebels to stop recruiting soldiers from among children and other civilians in refugee camps across the border in South Sudan, a U.S.
A top UN rights envoy in South Sudan says child soldiers are fighting in the conflict, with mass killings reported to have taken place.
'The reports that we have come across involve mass killings, extrajudicial killings, widespread destruction and looting, and child soldier recruitment,' the UN's Assistant Secretary-General for Human Rights Ivan Simonovic told reporters on Friday.
El Fasher — One of the largest armed movements in Darfur, the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), has recently affirmed its commitment prohibiting the recruitment and use of child soldiers.
The official Command Order, issued by JEM this week, comes following consultation held in July in Stadtschlaining, Austria, between the Movement and UNAMID's leadership.
The world was horrified last year when it hit the headlines that desperate refugees trying to cross the Sinai Desert were having their organs snatched while still alive by ruthless doctors.
Effectively combating transnational and cross border crimes requires close cooperation and commitment of several states, because it surpasses a single nation to combat crimes such as terrorism, human and drug trafficking. It is in this regards that Rwanda National Police hosted the Eastern Africa police Chiefs Cooperation Organization (EAPCCO) Police Command Post Exercise (PCXPX).
