UN: 12 million girls married during childhood annually

At least 12 million girls are married during childhood, under the age of 18, annually, according to new data from the UN.

A report by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) released on Tuesday revealed that while there is a decrease in the global percentage of child marriages, more than 150 million additional girls will be married before their 18th birthday by 2030.

Anju Malhotra, UNICEF's principal gender adviser, said although "any reduction is welcome news ... we've got a long way to go."
