UNICEF: Children suffer at shocking scale of war

Children in conflict zones around the world suffered "at a shocking scale" in 2017 as they became front line targets; used as human shields, killed, maimed and recruited to fight, the United Nation children’s agency said.

UNICEF said that rape, forced marriage, abduction and enslavement of children have become standard tactics in conflicts from Iraq, Syria and Yemen, to Nigeria, South Sudan and Myanmar.

The agency accused rival parties in conflict areas of "blatantly" disregarding international laws designed to protect the most vulnerable.
