Thousands of children have been killed in the Syria uprising since March 2011, according to a new global UN report on children and armed conflict.

Calling the toll "unbearable", the study said government forces and rebels were using boys and girls as "suicide bombers or human shields".

In total the study covered 21 countries where children are victims of violence.

For the first time Mali was added to the "shame list", which names armed parties who recruit and abuse children.
