Intensified fighting and indiscriminate shelling has led to an increased number of children being killed in Misrata in Libya, with many others lacking food and safe water. UNICEF (UN Children's Fund) is calling for an immediate end to the siege.

UNICEF spokesman in Cairo, James Elder, spoke to Radio New Zealand's Morning Report programme in detail about the risk to tens of thousands of children in the conflict-ridden city. The report was brodcast at 7.55am.
