UNICEF outraged by child massacre in Syria

NEW YORK, 26 MAY 2012 - UNICEF is outraged at the latest killing of 32 children - under the age of 10 - confirmed by United Nations observers, and the wounding of hundreds more in the village of Houla, near Homs. They were among more than 90 killed.

"This outrageous crime against such young children who have no part in these battles points to a new urgency in finding solutions to the Syrian conflict. Such a massacre cannot go unpunished," said Sarah Crowe, Spokesperson for the Executive Director of UNICEF.


"Our deepest condolences to the Syrian families who have suffered so much over the past 15 months of turmoil."
