Kids in Iraq

According to UNICEF's recent rapid assessment survey of conditions in Iraq, children in the country are doing worse now than before the war:
The results showed that acute malnutrition among children had almost doubled since before the war, jumping from 4 per cent to 7.7 per cent. Children who are acutely malnourished are literally wasting away, and for severe cases their condition can be fatal. Acute malnutrition sets in very fast and is a strong indicator of the overall health of children.
