(UNICEF) – At least 115 children have been killed and 172 maimed as result of conflict in Yemen since 26 March, UNICEF said today. Conservative estimates on the immense impact of the conflict on children indicate that at least 64 children have been killed by aerial bombardments, 26 by unexploded ordnance and mines, 19 by gunshots, three by shelling and three by unverified causes related to the conflict. In the north of the country, 71 children have been killed, while 44 have been killed in the south. The United Nations children’s agency believes that these are conservative numbers as the verification process is ongoing. The total number of children killed or maimed in Yemen’s conflict is likely to be higher.
