VTV.vn - According to the United Nations, last year was the worst on record for children trapped in regions where armed conflict rages, and it saw the highest numbers of children killed since the United Nations began keeping records on them.

The Annual Report of the Secretary-General on Children and Armed Conflict, released Tuesday, found more than 12,000 such children caught up in the 20 conflicts the UN monitored.

The numbers also include cases of child soldiers with nearly 7,000 children affected globally. Central African Republic and Democratic Republic of Congo showed some positive trends for peace and reintegration but still were found with grave violations against children.
