Intense sectarian violence has swept through northern and central Iraq.

An estimated 1.2 million people—half of them children—have fled their homes. Ethnic minorities have been targeted, schools have closed and hospitals supplies are dwindling.

UNICEF is working to provide essential services for children and families affected by the conflict.
