Atrocities being committed against children in Afghanistan are growing “higher by the day,” according to UN children’s charity Unicef.

The Taliban has made major advances in the past few days, capturing six provincial capitals since Friday.

More than 1,000 citizens have been murdered as a result of the conflict in the last month alone.

Many children have been killed by roadside bombs and caught in crossfire. 

“Afghanistan has long been one of the worst places on Earth to be a child but in recent weeks and, indeed, the last 72 hours, that’s got a lot worse,” Unicef Afghanistan’s Samantha Mort told the BBC.
