Nearly 1 million children under age 5 in South Sudan will require treatment for acute malnutrition in 2014, and without immediate intervention, it is estimated that 50,000 children could die from malnutrition by the end of the year. Further, one in every three people in the country faces dangerous levels of food insecurity, with many not knowing when and how they will secure their next meal.
Resurgent conflict has raised pre-existent emergency levels of undernutrition among children to grave heights, and famine now looms. If more is not done, we are in danger of witnessing a repetition of the crises that emerged in Somalia and the Horn of Africa three years ago, when early warnings of extreme hunger and escalating malnutrition went largely unheeded until official famine levels were announced. South Sudan’s children are already dying. They cannot wait for such an announcement.

O documento da United Nations Human Rights Committee citado na notícia é o seguinte:
They say that the State should focus on promoting non-violent forms of discipline.
THE UN HAS told Ireland to ban smacking children.
The international body’s Human Rights Committee yesterday released a hard-hitting, eight-page document of “concluding observations” which also criticise Ireland’s handling of the symphysiotomy controversy and lack of progress investigating the institutional abuse of women and children in mother-and-baby homes as well as abortion.
In their recommendations on children, the UNHRC says:
“The State party should take appropriate steps, including the adoption of suitable legislation, to put an end to corporal punishment in all settings.
It should encourage non-violent forms of discipline as alternatives to corporal punishment, and conduct public information campaigns to raise awareness about its harmful effects.
The recommendations have been welcomed by the Children’s Rights Alliance, who have long called for an outright ban on smacking.
“The UN Human Rights Committee has called on Ireland to ban hitting children in all settings,” said Tanya Ward of the Children’s Rights Alliance.
“A ban would change attitudes and reduce abuse levels overall. It’s about time that we took action to protect children from all forms of violence. The Committee also called on the Government to encourage non-violent forms of discipline and to conduct information campaigns to raise awareness about its harmful effects.
“Once again, the committee has criticised the lack of access to secular education in Ireland for children of minority faith or non-faith families. They recommend that the Government legislate against discrimination in access to schools on the grounds of religion or belief and increase the number of diverse schools and curriculum.”
