TO GO WITH STORY BY XAVIER BOURGOIS A very young Seleka fighter poses on July 25, 2013 at the Bangui firefighters barracks, turned into a Seleka base. Smiling from the back of a pick-up truck careering through Bangui, a child no older than ten clutches a rifle, struggling to stay upright in his freshly-pressed uniform. It's a familiar scene in the Central African capital, where demobilised child soldiers hoping to find their families and start a different kind of life regularly arrive at specialist centres run by western charities.
