UNICEF is criticising the living conditions of refugee children in Germany, saying they frequently lack proper medical care and access to schools for months.

The children’s agency says in its report children also need to be better protected from abuse in large shelters and the length of their stays there need to be reduced. Refugee children often live in mass shelters for more than six months without schooling.
