War Criminal or Victim?

The International Criminal Court prosecutes perpetrators of horrific crimes. But what if the perpetrator is also a victim?

 

That's the question we explore this week, with the disturbing tale of a child soldier who was kidnapped into a militia, but then rose the ranks to become a senior commander.

 

After climbing the hierarchy, he began kidnapping more children and killing civilians. So, is he a victim, or is he a perpetrator? And is it possible to be both?
