Syria crisis: Children 'recruited' by armed groups

Increasing numbers of children in Syria are being recruited by armed groups on both sides of the conflict, Save the Children says in a report.

Children are being used as porters, guards, informers and fighters and, in some cases, as human shields, the UK charity said in Childhood Under Fire.

Some two million children are in need of assistance in Syria, Save the Children estimates.
