UNICEF: Snipers targeting children in Libya city



GENEVA - The U.N. children’s agency says snipers are targeting children in the besieged rebel-held Libyan city of Misrata.

UNICEF spokeswoman Marixie Mercado told reporters in Geneva on Friday that the global body has received “reliable and consistent reports of children being among the people targeted by snipers in Misrata.”

She was unable to say how many children have been wounded or killed by snipers in Libya’s third-largest city.
