Yemen: 10,000 children killed or maimed during war, UN says

More than 10,000 children in Yemen have been killed or wounded in violence linked to years of war in the impoverished country, a spokesman for the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (Unicef) said on Tuesday.

According to the UN figures, a total of 3,455 children were killed and more than 6,600 wounded in the fighting in Yemen between 15 March 2015 and 30 September of this year.

Still, Unicef spokesman James Elder told reporters that the estimates provided by the international body are most likely an undercount of the real toll of children's deaths and injuries, which he said go largely unrecorded.
