…Law and Order Episode being filmed at the UN will feature child soldiers…

…”Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” was at the United Nations on Monday filming portions of an episode being shown on March 24.   Spokeswoman Marie Okabe said that the “episode “brings to the fore the themes of children in armed conflict as well as refugees.”  Typically the United Nations shies away from television and film, but since the episodes plot “centers around a child soldier from Northern Uganda” -the UN has been trying to eliminate the use and recruitment of child soldiers in that country – they were amenable to the filming.
