In a report released by Save The Children  it has been revealed that three in four child casualties in war are caused by explosive weapons.

The data “comes from UN data on the five deadliest conflicts for children – Nigeria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Yemen – as well as from a new review of child injury data, commissioned by Paediatric Blast Injury Partnership (PBIP)…”
