Child charity representative dismissed

7:51 am on 9 September 2011

It's been revealed that a representative of Save the Children was dismissed from his post in Myanmar under suspicion of trafficking boys under 18 to serve in a rebel army.

US diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks say his activities came to light last year when one of the victims escaped.

Save the Children says it acted promptly and notified the police.
