    > The Kurdish Red Crescent told AFP that 371 children were among those who died in the squalid tent city.

    > Malnutrition, poor healthcare for newborns, and hypothermia during harsh winter months are among the main causes of death among children, Kurdish Red Crescent spokesperson Dalal Ismail told AFP. "The situation is tragic and the burden is huge," she said, adding that foreigners were among the children who have died.
