Main sequences: UN Special Representative of Secretary General for Children and Armed Conflicts Olara Otunnu says there is a gap between words and actions in protecting children in the world’s conflict areas.  Girls are increasingly targeted for sexual crimes and murder in these areas.  Otunnu says there have been some gains in protecting children, but the world must do more to put a concrete system in place to turn words into actions.  The governments of the world must take seriously their political and legal responsibility to protect children.
