MORE SYRIAN CHILDREN DIE LAST YEAR THAN ANY OTHER TIME OF CONFLICT

It’s been revealed more children were killed in the Syrian conflict in 2016, than any other year of the war on record.

Figures from the charity UNICEF show at least 652 boys and girls died.

Meanwhile, the head of the Red Cross claims the scale of destruction there hasn’t been seen since the Second World War.

Shaheen Chughtai from Oxfam in the UK says global action would help change that.
