Geneva, 11.11.2015(Lana) UNICEF expressed concern over situation of Libyan children against the backdrop of the security situation in the country since 2011. UNICEF spokesperson said in a statement Tuesday that 40% out of 2.4 Libyans are children who need one form of support and protection. He said 270,000 Libyan children in Benghazi alone need psychological and social support due to armed -conflict related violence. He explained that the armed conflict and political instability in Libya since 2011 exposed children to many forms of violence and exploitation, asserting that the organization is intensifying their efforts to provide best protection. The organization underlined that it supervises a training programme to support Libyan authorities in the development of the justice system that responds to children needs and in line with UN convention on children rights ratified by Libya. =Lana=
