UNICEF Condemns Attacks on Schools and Children

ERBIL, 7 October 2013 – “A suicide bomb attack yesterday on a primary school in Tal Afar in northern Iraq left at least 10 children and their teachers dead and many others injured.

 

“This attack is an abominable act of hatred and an affront to all the children of Iraq.

“Schools are zones of peace where children must be allowed to play and learn in safety and security.

"UNICEF condemns this attack and calls for an end to the spiraling violence in Iraq."
