More than 100,000 babies a year die by war
Die every year of 100,000 newborn children in armed conflicts. That is apparent today from a new report by the ngo Save the Children. In 2017 lived about 420 million children - or 18 percent of all children in the world - in conflict zones, 30 million more than the year before.

According to Save the Children, are the ten most dangerous countries for children in Afghanistan, Yemen, South Sudan, the Central African Republic, Congo, Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Somalia and Mali. Only in those countries came between 2013 and 2017 at least 550.000 infants to the effects of conflict. In most cases, to indirect consequences, such as famine, poor infrastructure and difficult access to health care.

The ngo publishes its new report on the occasion of the annual veiligheidsconferentie in the German Munich. She asks of the international community a clear signal.
