Somalia: In the line of fire: Somalia’s children under attack
Children in southern and central Somalia are under relentless attack. Their lives are in constant danger and their hopes for the future have been shattered by armed conflict and grave human rights abuses. Homes are bombed, families killed, schools destroyed or closed. Much of the violence is indiscriminate. This report calls on the warring parties to end their assaults on children and for accountability for war crimes and other grave human rights abuses in Somalia.
