The United Nations has expressed serious concern over sufferings of children in Yemen who are at a risk of being recruited as child soldiers.

UN childrens' agency UNICEF representative in Yemen told a news conference in Sanaa that months of unpaid salaries have affected over three-quarters of teachers, meaning up to 4.5 million children may not finish the school year.

He said the children who are not in school are at risk of being recruited for military services.
