UN Report on Children and Armed Conflict

Last month, the Secretary General of the United Nations submitted his most report to the Security Council on the situation of Children and armed conflict.

The document proposes measures to end the recruitment and use of children in conflicts, the killing and maiming of children, rape and other sexual violence, abductions, denial of humanitarian access to children and attacks against schools and hospitals by parties to armed conflict.

The report includes annexes that name the groups that use and exploit children in various conflicts around the world.
