UNICEF condemns deaths of 11 children in Afghanistan

UNICEF condemns deaths of 11 children in Afghanistan
World  - "I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the attack which reportedly killed 11 children this morning while they were studying at a religious school in Afghanistan's southern Kandahar province.

"The attack occurred when a car packed with explosives was driven into a military convoy as it passed by. The explosion on the road was so powerful that it seriously damaged the building on the side of the road where the children were studying.

"The 11 children who were killed were six to 11 years old.

"Children should not have to face death when they are trying to learn. Parents should not have to choose between their children's education and their safety.

"I urge all parties to the conflict to protect children from ongoing violence across the country and to make sure that schools are, and remain, safe spaces."
