http://www.loupdargent.info - Staggering numbers of children – some as young as 12 months old – are experiencing violence, often by those entrusted to take care of them, UNICEF said in a new report released today.

"The harm inflicted on children around the world is truly worrying," said UNICEF Chief of Child Protection Cornelius Williams. "Babies slapped in the face; girls and boys forced into sexual acts; adolescents murdered in their communities – violence against children spares no one and knows no boundaries."
