UN to expose those who attack schools, hospitals

July 13, 2011 01:36

UNITED NATIONS - Countries and groups that attack schools and hospitals will be named and shamed by the United Nations and could be liable to sanctions under a resolution passed by the Security Council on Tuesday.

Perpetrators will be added to a list the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon publishes as an annex to an annual report on children and armed conflict. The list identifies those who kill, maim or rape children in armed conflicts, or recruit and use them as child soldiers.

The resolution, unanimously passed on Tuesday by the 15-member Security Council, asks Ban to also include in the report's annexes those who engage in recurrent attacks on schools and hospitals.
