UN warns of health risks for Iraqi children in deadly winter

UNICEF calls for serious measures to help protect thousands of children at risk of dying from freezing weather in the country devastated by war.

The United Nations has warned of dire consequences if more is not done to protect the children of Iraq.

UNICEF says freezing winter weather could be fatal for some of the 150,000 children in displacement camps.

It is also calling for more money to be spent on education.
