The year 2014 was the worst time to be a child living in a violent and insecure country, according to the United Nations.

The organization estimates that 230 million children currently live in conflict zones of which 15 million have been directly affected by violence.

The Security Council on Wednesday held a debate on children and armed conflict, which focused on ways to protect child victims of armed groups.
