Ahmad, the son of Lebanon's Hezbollah commander Mohamad Issa, known as Abu Issa, rides a vehicle as he carries his father's rifle during his funeral in Arab-Salim, south Lebanon January 20, 2015. U.N. peacekeepers stationed in the Golan Heights along the Syrian-Israeli border observed drones coming from the Israeli side before and after an airstrike that killed several top Hezbollah figures, the U.N. said Monday. Sunday's strike hit a convoy carrying commander Mohamad Issa, known as Abu Issa, in Quneitra, near Golan Heights, a Hezbollah statement said. An Iranian general killed in the Israeli air strike in Syria was not its intended target and Israel believed it was attacking only low-ranking guerrillas, a senior security source said on Tuesday. The remarks by the Israeli source, who declined to be identified because Israel has not officially confirmed it carried out the strike, appeared aimed at containing any escalation with Iran or the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrilla group.

Turkana boys play with rifles in a village inside the Turkana region of the Ilemi Triangle, northwest Kenya December 21, 2014. The Ilemi Triangle is a disputed region in East Africa, claimed by South Sudan and Kenya, bordering also Ethiopia. The dispute arose from unclear wording of a 1914 treaty which tried to allow free movement of the Turkana people, nomadic herders who had traditionally grazed the area.

The UN- backed court convicted Taylor of aiding and abetting war crimes and crimes against humanity, the first time a head of state has been found guilty by an international tribunal since the Nazi trials at Nuremberg. Taylor, 64, had been charged with 11 counts of murder, rape, conscripting child soldiers and sexual slavery during intertwined wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone, during which more than 50,000 people were killed.

The defence lawyer for Taylor walked out of the Sierra Leone war crimes court on Tuesday in protest at a decision by judges preventing him from filing a final summary of his evidence. Taylor denies all 11 charges of instigating murder, rape, mutilation, sexual slavery and conscription of child soldiers during wars in Liberia and Sierra Leone in which more than 250,000 were killed.

A child soldier from one of the many rebel groups operating along the Chad-Sudan border holds a gun in eastern Chad February 3, 2007. Experts estimate between 7,000 and 10,000 child soldiers operate in Chad in the national army, rebel and militia groups. Globally, the U.N. Children's Fund UNICEF believes there are some 250,000 child soldiers but some experts say that is a mere estimate because it is impossible to reach some battlefields. Picture taken February 3, 2007.

Former child soldiers play at a temporary rehabilitation centre in Chad's capital N'Djamena run by the Christian Children's Fund (CCF) July 18, 2007. They are some of the 413 child fighters demobilised from rebel militia FUC in the past few weeks under a deal between U.N. Children's Fund UNICEF and Chad's government. The U.N. Security Council is due to discuss the plight of children in conflict on July 23. In Chad, rights workers say all sides have used child fighters in a 19-month, on-off eastern revolt fomented by violence over the border in Sudan's Darfur.
