From the Guardian here:
In a report released on Monday, the UN documented 11,418 casualties, a 3% increase since 2015, including 3,498 deaths.
Child casualties rose 24% – to 923 killed and 2,589 wounded – mainly as a result of ground engagements closer to residential areas, and explosive remnants of war.
While the total number of killed marked a slight drop, the number of injured has grown 6% since 2016.
923 children killed in Afghanistan in 2016!
Brown children are children too, and their deaths are just as tragic, unjust, and barbaric as what happened at the Manchester Arena last night.
