(OSRSG-CAAC) – Leila Zerrougui has expressed deep concern about the fragile security situation in Afghanistan as she highlights that the latest report of the UN Secretary-General on children and armed conflict in the country shows the suffering of children has “increased over time.” The 18-page report, released today, says 2,302 children were killed, and 5,047 injured throughout the reporting period from 1 September 2010 to 31 December 2014. Of that toll, 2,502 children were killed or injured in 2014 alone – making that year the worst for child casualties of any in Afghanistan since the monitoring began in July 2007.
