The UN chief has refused to answer questions about his own report on children in conflict zones.

Ban Ki-moon, UN secretary-general, refused to answer questions on Wednesday about why Israel was left out of a list of violators in a report on children in conflict zones.

More than 500 children died during Israel's military operations in the Gaza Strip last year.
