UN: Iraqi children worse off than a year ago

The situation for Iraqi children is getting worse, and in some respects it was better before the war, a senior U.N. official said Monday. "Children today are much worse off than they were a year ago, and they certainly are worse off than they were three years ago," said Dan Toole, director of emergency programs for the United Nations Children's Fund. He said Iraqis no longer have safe access to a government-funded food basket, established under Saddam Hussein to deal with international sanctions.
