The UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) on Tuesday said it had reports that at least 30 children have been killed in the crackdown on Syrian protests, the organization said in an official statement.

UNICEF said "The use of live ammunition against demonstrators has reportedly left at least 30 children dead," noting that it has not been able to verify the number of victims yet.

The organization also raised concern about children who have been arrested and tortured.
