The Children of Lebanon

August 3, 2006
For the children of Lebanon, childhood has been altered by the cruelty of yet another war.

They have been wounded, seen the horror of losing family to death, have had to flee their homes barefooted, have been at the receiving end of bombing raids.

Many have died like no child should ever die.

In Lebanon, this has been happening every day. For the last 22 days.

Lebanon crisis: Who is to blame? Tell us!

Since Israel attacked Lebanon last month, half of the estimated 700 deaths have been children.
