It feels as if it’s been a long time, since we all travelled to Brussels: 30 parents who had lost their children besides myself and Laila Brice, the Latvian mother fighting for her daughter for 4 years. Thanks to her Latvian MEP Tatjana Zdanoka, we got heard and hopefully will be getting somewhere after all.

WAR ON INNOCENCE: Yemen crisis: Meet the child soldiers who have forsaken books for Kalashnikovs

Yemen crisis: Meet the child soldiers who have forsaken books for Kalashnikovs

With schools forced to close, children as young as seven have been recruited by the Shia Houthi rebels

At the entrance of Bab Al-Yemen, Old Sanaa, a waif-like Hassan, dwarfed by his Kalashnikov, stands at a checkpoint. His dark eyes scan vehicles as they pass through.

Like most seven-year-olds in Sanaa, Hassan used to spend his time at school – or playing table football with his friends. That was until three weeks ago.

“Now my school is closed,” he says, carefully scrutinising the white Toyota Yaris entering the old city. In less than a week, Hassan went from being a pupil in class to manning the capital’s checkpoints on behalf of the Houthi rebels. Their takeover of the city last year eventually led…

Teenage girl tragically killed herself after bullies flooded her social media accounts with horrible messages… as her parents call for action against the two boys responsible

teen-girlAs the anniversary of their daughter’s suicide approaches, Michael and Jane Cleland have spoken of their battle to have the two teenage boys, who they say bullied their daughter to death, held accountable for their actions under cyber bullying laws.
Jessica Cleland, from Wallan, Victoria, was 19 when she took her own life on Easter Saturday last year, after receiving Facebook messages from two teenage boys she considered friends saying that they hated her, and that she was a ‘f***ing sook’.

If the children in Yemen are not killed by bombs and bullets, they will be killed by a lack of food

If the children in Yemen are not killed by bombs and bullets, they will be killed by a lack of food

Community members tell me our emergency food rations are a life-saver, but what happens when they run out?

Sami Jassar/Islamic Relief

The situation in Yemen has escalated to such a point that we need a total rethink of how we distribute aid in the country. There are many people in desperate need but it’s dangerous for aid workers to deliver support and it’s dangerous for people to go in search of that support. We have to distribute food as quickly as possible in a way that minimises risk to all concerned.

Syrisches Kind ergibt sich der Kamera

Syrisches Kind ergibt sich der Kamera

Das Foto eines Mädchens, das die Kamera eines Fotografen für eine Waffe hält, zeigt das verheerende Ausmaß des syrischen Bürgerkriegs, der seit 2011 im Land wütet und bisher über 220.000 Menschenleben gefordert hat.

Die Hände hoch über dem Kopf, in den Augen blanke Angst: Erstarrt vor Angst schaut ein syrisches Kind in die Kamera. Es ist eigentlich viel zu jung, um zu wissen, was es da tut, weiß es aber ganz genau: Das kleine Mädchen kapituliert. Es hebt die Hände hoch, weil es Angst hat, erschossen zu werden.CA4zS7fWYAAaEIJNadia Os.AbuShaban@NadiaAbuShaban
