The amount of children living in conflict zones has rocketed since the early 90s—here's why.

 

excerpt below

 

This is an increase of over 75 per cent since the early 90s.

More than half (165 million) of these children are living in places with high-intensity conflicts.

What are the reasons behind this increase?

"Part of the reason is that we are seeing more conflicts today—more conflicts that are going on for longer," Caroline Anning, a Senior Conflict & Humanitarian Advocacy Adviser at Save the Children told Euronews.

"We're also seeing them happening in more populated areas," she added, "the conflicts in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, a lot of them are happening in towns and cities where there are lots of children living."
