Situation for Iraqi children 'extremely volatile': UN

Internally displaced Iraqi children are seen at a shelter on June 29, 2014The Sunni militant onslaught in Iraq has created “an extremely volatile and dangerous situation for children,” a top UN official warned Tuesday. There were “disturbing reports” of the recruitment of child soldiers and other “grave violations” against minors in the conflict, said Leila Zerrougui, the UN special representative for children and armed conflict. The jihadist group leading the Iraqi offensive had since 2011 been on the United Nation’s black list in particular because of its attacks against schools, Zerrougui noted. It accuses seven national armies and 50 armed groups of using child soldiers — including Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo, South Sudan and Syria.
