Dozens of children killed, maimed in Yemen in two months: UNICEF

More than 10,200 children have been killed or injured since the Saudi-led coalition intervened in 2015, the UN agency said.

At least 47 children were “killed or maimed” in Yemen’s civil war in January and February following a surge in violence, the United Nations children’s fund said on Saturday.

Children are the “first and most to suffer”, UNICEF said, adding that at least 10,000 minors have been killed or injured since 2015, when the Saudi-led military alliance launched air raids in the Middle East’s poorest country.
