'Over 400 children killed' in Syrian uprising

More than 400 children in Syria have been killed since the start of the uprising last March, according to human rights activists.

The UN has condemned what it has called "numerous and substantiated" reports of torture in detention - which includes that of children.

As the uprising enters its 10th month, the BBC's Fergal Keane reports on the state violence against children in Syria.
