Situation of children in Iraq 'a neglected crisis'

by BBC News Middle East on 06-05-2013

Ten years on from the US-led invasion, violence is increasing, life expectancy is falling and children are falling behind in education, a new report says.

Cuando hablamos del número de civiles muertos durante la ocupación de Iraq de 2003 a 2013, sería una buena idea recurrir a los estudios científicos de The Lancet, de la agencia Opinion Research Business [ORB] o incluso de la BBC para calcular el número de víctimas de la guerra de Iraq. No deberíamos utilizar los cálculos que publican los medios de comunicación, como los de Iraq Body Count o Costs of War. Es una gran injusticia con los cientos de miles de víctimas iraquíes de la catástrofe de Iraq. Cada muerte fruto de esta ocupación ilegal debería ser recordada, no sólo la de los soldados de las fuerzas invasoras y ocupantes.

Report submitted under agenda item 3 (Promotion and protection of all human rights, civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, including the right to development.) GICJ and BRussells Tribunal coordinated the work of more than 300 NGOs and submitted to the 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council reports covering the human rights situation in Iraq. the 22nd session of the Human Rights Council takes place in the United Nations in Geneva from 25 February to 22 March 2013.

For two decades, Iraqi children have been subjected to grave violations of human rights. Due to decades of war, foreign occupation and international sanctions, Iraq has turned into one of the worst places for children in the Middle East.
